My Favorite Apple Pie Recipe

This is my go-to apple pie recipe. I love making apple pies in the fall. We've gone apple picking a few times, so we've had so many apples at our house. Mostly I make mini pies, but this time I wanted to try something new. You can see the mini pies here.

6-8 cups tart apples (about 6-8 medium sized apples) cut into small pieces
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 tbsp. margarine or butter

Heat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare crust. Mix sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon in a bowl. Stir in apples. Put in crust and dot with margarine or butter.

You can buy the crust pre-made or make your own.  This is the recipe I use when I make my own:

1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp. shortening
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
2-3 tbsp. cold water
Cut shortening into flour, sprinkle with water (1 tbsp. at a time)
Gather into ball and roll out.
Makes one crust. For this I made two one for crust one for the top.

Bake for 30-45 minutes.
