Apple Pie

This easy-to-do recipe reminds us that apples need very little help to make a memorable pie. Apples are simply layered in the pie pan, with each layer sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. Then they are topped with a crust and dabs of butter. And in less than an hour, this classic pie bakes to perfection.


8 servings


6 cups thinly sliced apples
3/4 cup granulated (white) sugar
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie


Prepare your pastry for a two crust pie. Wipe, quarter, core, peel, and slice apples; measure to 6 cups.

Preheat oven to 450°F (232°C). Combine sugar and cinnamon. The amount of sugar used depends on how tart your apples are.

Arrange apples in layers in pastry lined pie plate. Sprinkle each layer with sugar and cinnamon. Dot top layer with small pieces of butter. Cover with top crust. Cut several slits in top of crust to allow steam to escape while the pie bakes.

Place pie on lowest rack in oven. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350°F (177°C). Bake for 30 to 35 minutes longer. Serve warm or cold.
