Hey friends. Sorry I feel like I have been neglecting you! I need to get my butt into gear, and back to the blogging!! Two nights ago, I attempted to make my first homemade apple pie. It turned out great, nott perfect, but it sure tasted yummy with vanilla ice cream!
Most of you may already have your own pie crust recipe or even your own apple pie recipe. So, you can still make this pie with your own crust, just try the apple filling I made! Mmm! Apple-licious
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
5 cups thinly sliced peeled apples (3 large)
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
Stir together 1/2 cup sugar, the flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in large bowl. Add apples; toss. Spoon into pastry-lined pie plate. Dot with butter.
Roll remaining pastry; cut into 10 strips, each about 1/2 inch wide. Place 5 strips across filling in pie plate. Weave a cross-strip through by first folding back every other strip of the first 5 strips. Continue weaving, folding back alternate strips before adding each cross-strip, until lattice is complete. Trim ends. Fold trimmed edge of bottom crust over ends of strips, building up a high edge. Seal and flute. Brush lightly with milk; sprinkle lightly with additional sugar.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until crust is golden brown and juice is bubbly.
