6 Red Delicious apples
1/2 C. to 2/3 C. of sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2 T. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
dash nutmeg or cloves
2 pie crusts (uncooked)
1 T. butter or margarine
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Pare and slice apples. Stir together dry ingredients and mix with
apples. Line pie pan with crust, fill with apple mixture, dot with butter and over with top crust. Place foil
ring (see Tip below) on top and gently press around the sides. This will protect the crust
from getting too brown.
Bale at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 45 minutes longer. Makes 1 pie.
Tip to keep crust from burning - Cover the empty pie pan with foil. Press around the sides, cut
a hole out of the middle that will leave a ring around the sides just wide enough to cover the crust. Remove the
foil ring to use later once the pie is prepared to bake.
