Here is my "famous" apple pie recipe.
The only reason why this pie tastes good, is because NO ONE makes homemade pies anymore. So make one, and you too, will have a hit!
(And here's a secret to make it even easier...if you don't have time to make the crust, use the roll out Pillsbury refrigerated kind. No one can taste the difference, trust me on this one.)
10-12 apples (I usually use Macintosh, but any old apple will do.) Peel and slice and put in large bowl.
1 cup sugar
1 TBS. cinnamon
2 TBS. flour
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp lemon juice
1 TBS butter
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter
6 TBS cold water
Smash together with fork till doughy. Split in two balls, and roll out on floured countertop, with rolling pin.
Lay one crust in pie plate that has been buttered or sprayed.
Dump filling indredients in.
Lay other crust on top and seal the edges.
You don't have to be fancy. It tastes the same whether there are nice little fluted edges or NOT. The kids love when there is extra crust left and they can make designs...monograms, leaves, Sponge Bob...we've had it all.
Take about 2 TBS milk and brush over crust before baking, then sprinkle about 1 TBS sugar over top. This makes it look really good.
Bake at 425 for 45 minutes.
Halfway through, lay a piece of foil over top so crust doesn't get too brown.
A piece of foil in the bottom of the oven makes it easier to clean up too.
