Apple Pie

A friend brought us some home grown apples. I had enough to make an apple pie and prepare 3 more batches with all the ingredients to freeze and make pies later on. The pie was so good that I have already pulled out a frozen mix and made another one. While the oven was heating, I made the pie crust. It was quick and easy and tasted just as good if not better than the pie made with the fresh apples.



  • 6 cups apples thinly sliced
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • Dash nutmeg
  • Dash salt
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • Pastry for 2 crust pie (see below)

Pie Crust:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (sift before measuring)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup Crisco shortening
  • 7 Tbsp. cold water


For Pie Crust: Mix flour and salt. Blend in Crisco until its crumbly. Add water and mix with spoon. Add a little flour until you can form dough into a ball. Divide the dough into 2 balls and roll for bottom crust and top crust.

Combine sugar, flour, spices and salt. Mix with apples. Pour into unbaked pie crust and dot with butter. Place crust on top, trim and seal the edges. Cut six slits in middle for steam to escape. Bake 400 degrees F for 50 minutes. Let cool before cutting so the juices will set. Slice and serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top.
