Here you go, Alice, as a reward for running! And because I told you I would.
Grammie Ruth's Apple Pie
6-8 apples (macs and cortlands work best), peeled and sliced
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
4 Tbsp. flour
1 &1/2 tsp. lemon juice
sprinkle brown sugar
1 tsp. each cinnamon and nutmeg
Mix well and put in crust. cover with second crust. Cut slits into top crust for venting. Bake 1 hour in a 400 degree oven. If crust browns too quickly, cover loosely with foil.
2 & 1/4 cups flour
1 cup Crisco shortening
1 tsp. salt
1 egg, beaten
Beat egg and place in a 1/2 cup. fill almost to the top with cold water. Blend into the flour/crisco mix until all is just mixed. Pull out onto floured surface and knead until almost smooth. Roll flat with rolling pin. Makes top and bottom crust.
My gram is famous for using very few directions... it took me a while to figure out how to cut each crust out. enjoy the challenge!
