Apple Pie Recipe

Apple Pie                  

This has a top crumb crust, rather than a full crust:

Pastry for 9 inch one-crust pie
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
dash of salt
8 cups thinly sliced pared tart apples (about 8 medium or 6 large)

Crumb crust:
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 c. flour
1/3 c. butter or margarine
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
maybe a pinch of cloves and mace if you like that. If not double the cinnamon.

Heat oven to 450 degrees. Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon & salt in large bowl. Stir in apples. Put apple-mixture into pastry-lined pie plate. (You may want to press apples down firmly -- they shrink a LOT!!! You need a real mound of apples to end up with a decent pie).

Mix sugar and flour for crumb crust in medium bowl. Cut in margarine; add spices. Put crumbs on top of pie -- you'll probably need to press them onto apples to keep them from falling off.

Bake for 10 minutes; then lower to 350 and bake for 40 more. Check for doneness with fork.
