Apple Pie


  • 6 – 8 medium apples, peeled and sliced
  • Pie crust
  • 1 – 2 cups sugar
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ginger
  • 1/8 tsp. cloves or allspice
  • 4 Tbsp. butter


Prepare crust as you for any other fruit pie. Line bottom of pan. Combine sugar and spices. Use the quantities according to the tartnes of the apples. Pour over apples. Dot whole pie with butter. (This is the secret to really good apple pie.) Add top crust. Seal well and make plenty of slashes for steam to escape. Cook at 400F for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 325F and cook for one hour or so. Slow, long cooking is the other secret to good apple pie.
