Old Fashioned Apple Pie

This recipe is a classic and will remind you of the good old days. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 9-inch unbaked pie crust
  • 6 cups thinly sliced, peeled cooking apples (about 6 medium)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Roll out pie crust on a lightly floured surface and place in a 9-inch pie plate. Trim and flute the edges. In a large mixing bowl, combine the apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Mix well and spoon into the pie crust. Dot with butter or margarine. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Let it cool for 10 minutes before serving.
