Just like grandma used to make!
We like to use Haralson or Granny Smith apples for this recipe!
4 pods of Pappy's Pie Dough, thawed but still chilled
5-7 tart baking apples
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons flour
dash of salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter
Preheat oven to 400°. Ensure your Pappy’s Pie Dough Crusts are thawed, but still chilled.
For each crust (top and bottom), roll out on floured surface to about 12” in diameter and ¼” thick. (you'll likely need more than one pod for each crust if you are using a deep dish pie tin.
Place bottom crust in 9" pie pan with crust overlapping the side.
Core and pare apples. Slice thin.
In a large mixing bowl, mix sugar, flour, salt, spices and apple slices. If apples are not tart, add 1 TBSP lemon juice.
Place apple mixture in pie crust and dot with butter. Place top pie crust layer on top and crimp edges.
Make 1" slits or with fork in 3 or 4 places on top of crust for steam vents. Sprinkle top crust with large crustal decorator's sugar for a professional look.
Bake at 400° for 50 minutes.
Cool on rack to let set prior to serving warm or at room temperature.
