Everyone’s favourite – good old-fashioned apple pie! Great warm – straight from the oven the aroma alone put smiles on faces. And it keeps very well for quite a while. Serve with a slice of old cheddar or heat up and put a scoop of french vanilla ice cream with it……oh sooooo good!
Old-fashioned Apple Pie
6 cups of thinly sliced apples
6 tablespoons of granulated sugar
6 tablespoons of brown sugar
1/3 cup of flour
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of salt
1/4 cup of butter
1/2 teaspoon of lemon rind
6 tablespoons of whipping cream
1 rich flaky recipe (find it in my recipe section)
Prepare pastry and line 9″ pie plate, reserving enough for top crust. Core, peel and slice apples. Combine sugars, flour, cinnamon and salt together, then mix with apples. Spread apple mixture into unbaked pie shell. Dot with butter, sprinkle with lemon rind. Pour whipping cream over top, then cover with top pie crust,sealing carefully and making slits to allow steam to escape. Bake in hot oven (450F) for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350F and continue baking 20 -30 minutes or until apples are cooked and pie is golden brown.
Note: Hard green apples will keep their shape better that other varienties of apples.
