Grandma’s Apple Pie Recipe
  • 6-7 cups of medium apples, cored, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 2 Tbsp. butter


Mix all ingredients in a large bowl except the butter. Microwave this filling mixture 2-3 minutes. Then pour into the pie crust. Dot with chunks of the butter and top with the other crust. Cut steam slits in the top crust and sprinkle the top with sugar. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Then turn down to 350 degrees and bake for 35-45 minutes, until apples are tender and juices are bubbling nicely out of the steam slits.
