Mom's Apple Pie


  • 5 large apples
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (use less with very sweet apples)
  • 2 Tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 homemade or refrigerated pie crusts


  • Combine 4 cups of water and 1 tsp. of salt in a large bowl.
  • Peel the apples, core them, and slice them. Place the apples in the salted water.
  • Prepare a 9 inch pie pan with a bottom crust.
  • Drain the apples, but do not rinse them.
  • Combine the apples, sugar, cinnamon, and flour. Toss well to combine.
  • Place the apple mixture into the pie pan and dot with the putter.
  • Top with the remaining crust.
  • Brush the top crust with milk and bake at 400 degrees for 50 minutes.
  • NOTE: if the pie crust edges brown too quickly, cover with foil.
