Every fall, for many decades, Nan Allin makes this delicious apple pie straight from memory. The warm apple and cinnamon scent fill the kitchen and instantly provides a comforting and cozy atmosphere. This pie is what autumn is all about. We were lucky enough to have Nan Allin provide us with her recipe to bring the same comfort and coziness this pie brings into your own kitchen. Enjoy!
2 unbaked pie shells
2 tbsp flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
4 or 5 tart apples (we recommend Cortland or Spy)
Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Mix together sugar, flour and cinnamon. Put 2 tbsp of the flour/sugar mixture in the pie shell and spread it around. Cut up & slice the apples and put into the pie shell. Put the remaining flour/sugar mixture on top of the apples then sprinkle with lemon juice. Dot the top of the apples with butter. Put the second pie shell on top and flute the edges. Bake for 10 minutes at 450 degrees. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue to bake for half an hour.
