Alaina's Apple Pie

This is my favorite Apple Pie Recipe,
thanks to my roommate Alaina and Betty Crocker.

I really don't like how apple's are always mushy in apple pie. This recipe is great because it seems so much more fresh. Even though it isn't apple pie season really, this is one of my favorite pies. We always  make it with our friends apples from his orchard, but Granny Smith are a great option if you don't have local apples from a farmers market.

This picture is before the apple pie was baked. It will look a little more browned.

Pie Filling Ingredients

6 medium apples sliced
2 Tbs flour
3/4 sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt


Pie Crust Ingredients

2 cups flour
2/3 cup butter
5-7 Tbs cold water

To make the pie crust you mix the ingredients and split it into two balls. Roll them separately: one is for the top crust and one is for the bottom.

Put pie filling in the bottom crust and place 3-4 small gobs of butter. Then cover with top crust and connect the two crusts.

Bake at 400 degrees for 50 minutes

Depending on the oven (if it is a hotter one) it might be useful to cover with aluminum foil for the first 30 minutes and then uncover to brown the crust.
