    Apple: Grandma's World Famous Apple Pie

    Source of Recipe

    Recipe Introduction

    "Some things are hard to improve on, like tender sweet and spicy apples in a flaky golden crust. This is it."

    List of Ingredients

    Pastry for two-crust 9-inch pie
    6 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and thinly
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 tablespoon flour
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    1/8 teaspoon ground mace
    2 tablespoons butter or margarine
    Cream or whole milk


    1) Heat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a 9-inch pie pan with half the pastry. In large bowl, combine apples, sugar, flour, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, and mace; toss well to blend. Transfer apple mixture to pastry-lined pie pan and dot with butter.

    2) Cover apple filling with remaining pastry; pinch together edges of bottom and top crust to seal. Brush top crust with cream or milk; cut several slits to vent steam. Bake 20 minutes. Reduce oven heat to 375 degrees F and bake 30 to 35 minutes or until apples are tender.
