Apple Pie

Make pastry for one 9 inch pie.

Approximately 4 c. apples peeled and sliced
2/3 c. sugar. depending upon tartness
2 (scant) Tbsp. flour
Mix flour with half the sugar

Since this uses very little flour, sprinkle all the flour-sugar mix on the bottom crust. Put in apples, add remaining sugar, a sprinkling of cinnamon and nutmeg, if desired, and dot with butter or margarine. Sprinkle with lemon juice if apples are bland. Finish with top crust.

Start pies at 400°F for 15 minutes (bottom rack) then lower temperature to 350°F til juice begins to bubble. Finish at 300°F.
