Apple Pie

Ingredients

  • 2 (9 inch) unbaked pie crusts
  • 7 cups peeled, cored and sliced apples
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl combine apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Place mixture in a pastry-lined 9 inch pie plate. Dot with butter and adjust top crust that has been vented.
  3. Place in oven and bake at 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) for 10 minutes. Turn oven temperature down to 275-300 degrees F (135-150 degrees C) and bake 40-50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and apples are tender. Let cool and serve.

 

Comments:

The results of this recipe vary greatly dependent upon what apples you use.  I like to use a blend of two or three apples to give it some variety.  Typically i’ll use a Gala apple, and a Fuji.

Depending on what apples you use, you also really need to pay attention to cooking times. If you over cook it, your pie will turn into a soup.   If you run into problems with this, I find that cooking it for shorter amounts of time and using slightly more flour will help combat the excess moisture.
