Apple Pie for Christmas Dinner

I don’t actually like pie, but my former mother-in-law made an apple pie once that I just loved. She served it warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Delicious! She gave me the recipe, and I finally had a chance to make it this year for dessert at Christmas dinner.


6 medium-sized apples, pared, quartered, cored, and sliced thin
1 cup sugar
2 ½ tbsp flour
¾ tsp ground cinnamon
½ tsp ground nutmeg
¼ tsp salt
2 tbsp butter
For topping: 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp milk or cream

Prepare pastry or use ready made 2 crust pastry from Pillsbury.

Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in large bowl. Add apple slices. Toss gently to mix.

Spoon apple mixture into bottom crust. Dot with butter.

Cover with top crust. Pinch crust edges together; turn up and in. Pinch again to form stand-up edge Flute.

Brush top with milk or cream. Sprinkle with sugar. Slice top crust to vent.

Bake in a hot oven at 425 for 35 minutes or until golden brown and juices bubble through slits. Cool pie completely on a wire rack.
