Old-Fashioned Apple Pie

Emily found this recipe online.  She did not add the cheese to it.  She also cooked it longer.  Next time we will cook it at the temperature that I am typing on this recipe.  {print recipe}

Old-Fashioned Apple Pie

6 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples

1 Tablespoon lemon juice

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

dash ground cloves

1 Tablespoon butter, cut into pieces

double pie crust

In a large mixing bowl toss apples with lemon juice.  Combine the sugar, flour, brown sugar, and spices.  Add to apples and toss until apples are coated.  Set apple mixture aside.

Ready for the top crust

Prepare your pie crust and put the bottom crust in the pie pan.  Put the pie filling in the crust and then top with the butter pieces.  Roll the top crust out and cover the pie (or do a lattice pie crust).  Brush with milk and sprinkle with some cinnamon/sugar mixture.

Lattice pie top

Bake at 425º for 15 minutes.  Cover with foil and continue baking until the apples are tender (another hour or more depending on the type of apples).
