I have yet to find an apple pie recipe that rivals my grandmother's. This recipe is good for a quick fix. I always make my own pie crust as there is a noticable difference. I have found the frozen or already prepared pie crusts to be too salty for our taste. I use Cortland apples which seem to be the best for pie (tart yet sweet and very crisp). Excellent for pie baking! Also, I prefer using white and brown sugar mixed with cinnamon to help sweeten the apples. I then top with tiny pats of butter (evenly) and cover with the homemade pie crust - careful to pinch the top and bottom crusts together. I always cut slits in the top of the pie to allow the steam to escape. This helps to keep the pie crust flaky. You can brush the top pie crust with milk and cover the crust with a crust presever just before baking. I check the crust with about 20 minutes of bake time left and sometimes I will remove the preserver so that the crust browns up nice. Serve pie warm with cinnamon ice cream for an extra treat! Enjoy!
