Many years ago, a missionary who was living in our area asked me to get this recipe from his mom. This is probably one of the very first pies I really learned how to make on my own.
7-8 granny smith apples (peeled, cored, & thinly sliced)
1 c. sugar
1 T. cinnamon + some
1 T. flour + some
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. butter (1/2 a cube)
Place apples in pan over medium heat. While stirring, continue to heat until almost translucent – stirring & turning regularly. Add sugar, cinnamon & flour & continue for a couple more minutes until the apples are coated & the sugar mixture has combined with the juices from the apples, making almost a syrup.
Place in unbaked pie crust & sprinkle topping over the apple mixture.
To make topping:
Crumble or ‘cut in’ all ingredients together.
Bake at 350* for 1 hour.
You know it turned out right if the pie raises up while it is cooking & then sinks back down. Source Recipe: http://triedandtruefavoriterecipes.blogspot.com
