Aunt Betsy's Apple Pie
No matter how good a cookbook is, it will never be quite perfect like one that you make yourself. I started making my own back when I was in middle school, slowly accumulating more and more tried-and-true recipes, and now when I need something for dinner or to bring to a friend's house, I will almost exclusively turn to one of these 2 books.
AUNT BETSY'S APPLE PIE
6-8 honeycrisp apples, peeled, cored and sliced thinly
3/4 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 pie crusts
2 Tbsp. butter
cinnamon & sugar for dusting the top
1. Mix together apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and lemon juice.
2. Pour apples into a prepared pie crust. Dot with butter all over the top of the apples, then cover with second pie crust. Cut vent holes. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
3. Bake at 400˚ for 50 minutes.
