My son-in-law Bill loves apple pie – no other kind, just apple.   If I want to make a different kind of pie when they’re here for dinner, I make sure I have this apple pie for Bill and now grandson Josh is starting to request it, too.  Any good mix of pie apples would work (and I’ve used them all) but Golden Delicious are readily available and work fine.



5 cups peeled, cored, sliced apples – I prefer Golden Delicious

¾ cup granulated sugar

1 Tblsp. flour

½ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp nutmeg

1/8 tsp salt

2  Tblsp. butter

Pastry for 9” 2-crust pie

1 T milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees  F.

Combine apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl.  Mix and let set while making crust.  Fill pastry lined pie pan, dot with butter.  Place top crust, flute edges, brush with milk and cut vents.  Place pie on a large flat pan to catch spills and bake 45 minutes @ 375 degrees F .  Cool on rack.
