Apple Pie

I was hungry for meatloaf and apple pie so I invited my son and daughter-in-law to stay for dinner when they came to get J.Shea Can't make a meatloaf or a pie for just one person. Well, I could, but it sure wouldn't be good for me! Anyway, I thought you might be interested in my apple pie. I got this recipe out of the newspaper many years ago and it is the only apple pie I have made since.
Make a crust for a single crust pie. Peel and slice 7 to 9 apples (I make a deep dish)
Add 1/2 cups sugar
2 Tablespoons flour
dash of salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix and pour into crust
Mix together until crumbly
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1 stick margarine
Sprinkle over pie.

Put pie in a brown paper grocery bag and seal the bag ( I just fold it over a couple times.)

Bake at 400 for 1 hour.

The top gets crispy which I love but the next best thing is that if the pie runs over, as most apple pies do, the mess stays in the bag. This pie is best the day it is made. The topping tends to get soggy the next day.
Give it a try, I'll bet you'll love it!
