Grandma's Apple Pie
Updated: Sep 26
I have experimented with apple pie recipes for years and this is by far my favorite combination. Every year our family has gone apple picking and my husband and I still do this today. There is nothing like fresh off the tree apples to make a great apple pie. We prefer to use Winesap apples available in our area, but any crisp tart apple will make this great pie.
3/4 cup sugar + Tbsp.
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbs. Flour
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. salt
2 lbs. tart apples - peeled and cored
1/4 cup light cream
3 Tbs. butter softened
1 Tbs. Milk
1 double pie crust
Layer all ingredients except the cream, butter and milk into a pie shell.
Pour cream into center of apples and dot apples with butter.
Cover with top pie crust and crimp.
Slit top crust and brush with milk - sprinkle a bit of white sugar across the top.
Place pie plate on an aluminium covered cookie sheet (pie may bubble over depending on the moisture in the apples).
Bake @400F for 50 minutes.
Cool for 1 hour before serving warm.
