Mummu’s Award Winning Apple Pie
Our Old Family Recipe.
Made With Mcintosh Apples.
Fall is the time for pie making at our house and I use Mcintosh apples, you can use other kinds but this is my favorite.
You will need about ten apples peeled and sliced very thin. I slice it leaving the core and then just tossing the cor and peel.But most would probably core and peel and use a cutting board I just slice it into a bowl that has cold water and salt so they slice don’t turn brown.
You will need:
Ten apples peeled then sliced,
1/3 cup of brown sugar,
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg.
Prepare pastry dough to line a 9 inch pie plate.
put a few dot of butter and mix the apples with the spice and sugar after draining and place in the pie shell, evenly with a slightly higher amout in the middle.
Roll out dough for top crust and slash the top or make a open design or lattice. Trim and flute the edges.
Brush on a mixture of egg and water for a nice brown colour
Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 45 mins or until steam is coming from the vent and the crust is brown.
I serve with vanilla ice-cream (ala mode)
