Grandma's Apple Pie
this is my favorite apple pie recipe, and i get loads of compliments 
every time. some variations i've tried on in are replacing half the 
white sugar with light brown sugar, and mixing about half granny smith 
apples with half macintosh apples. for the crust, i usually use the 
recipe on the box of butter flavor crisco. 
 
perfect apple pie 
 
source: better homes and gardens 
 
serves: 8 
 
6 cup  (about 6 to 8) tart apples, pared, cored and thinly sliced
3/4 to 1 cup  sugar
2 Tbsp  all-purpose flour
1/2 to 1 tsp  ground cinnamon
dash  ground nutmeg
  pastry for 2-crust 9-inch pie
2 Tbsp  butter
 
oven: 400 degrees 
 
preheat oven to 400:f. prepare pastry for pie crust. if apples lack 
tartness, sprinkle with about 1 tbsp lemon juice. combine sugar, 
flour, spices, and dash salt; mix with apples. line 9-inch pie plate 
with pastry. fill with apple mixture; dot with butter. adjust top 
crust, cutting slits for escape of steam; seal. sprinkle with sugar. 
bake at 400:f for 50 minutes or till done. 
 
for an apple crumb pie: 
prepare as above, except substitute single-crust pastry recipe for 
double-crust pastry recipe. stir together 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 
and 1/2 cup packed brown sugar. using a pastry blender, cut in 3 
tbsp butter till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. sprinkle over 
apple mixture.
