Apple Pie

Were you wondering what to put in that delicious flaky crust you now have sitting in your fridge?  How do you feel about a classic?  Apple pie!  Warm, cinnamony, and always delicious.  In my opinion, it's even better the next morning for breakfast!  This is one of those recipes that I always thought was some Flinn family revelation.  A secret only for us.  It is so good, it had to be something special.  Nope.  It's in the checkered cookbook (Better Homes and Gardens) that every home is almost guaranteed to have on its shelf.  But a delicious recipe like this, has to be shared.

If you're lucky, it might just be the best apple pie you've ever had!

Recipe from Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook
6 c. Apples; peeled, cored and sliced
1 T. Lemon Juice
3/4 c. Sugar
2 T. Flour
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1/8 tsp. Nutmeg

1.  Prep your apples.
2.  Mix all of the ingredients in a large mixing bowl, coating all of the apples.
3.  Roll out your pie crust.
4.  Fill with apple mixture.
5.  Cover with other crust.  Cut and crimp the edges.  Cut vents into the top.  Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar (optional).
6.  Bake at 375 for 60 minutes.  (Cover edges of pie with foil if they start getting too dark.)

That looks very delicious...I bet you get good apples out there too! Forgot to tell you to put some buttter on top of the apples, and brush the crusts with egg water mixture. Maybe someone will make me one?

I knew I was forgetting something. It turned out pretty well although they weren't the best apples still...I will have to try again soon with some more tart apples.

...then it will be the best pie ever!
