Apple Pie

Apple Pie
By: Cindy Watkins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

FILLING:
5-6 Granny Smith apples
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1-2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
*You can add nuts and/or raisins to this: ½ cup nuts, ¾ cup raisins

TOPPING:
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup flour
½ c. butter

Place pie crust (see recipe for Barbara’s Pie Crust) in an 8 or 9" deep dish. Mix sugar, flour, and salt; set aside. Peel and core 5-6 apples and slice into medium wedges. Arrange wedges in pie crust (pile higher in center for top crust pie). Sprinkle spices over apples, then sprinkle with sugar. Mix, then dot evenly with butter. Add topping evenly. Bake for about 30 minutes or until very bubbly and top crumbles are golden brown.

**This may also be done with a top pie crust. Cut designs in crust – very pretty! Dust crust with cinnamon and sugar instead of making a topping.
