Clara asked if I had a good apple pie recipe and she is in luck! I do! I found this recipe in the Huntsville Heritage Cookbook that my grandmother gave me years ago. I have found the best pie and biscuit recipes in this book. This apple pie recipe is the quickest, easiest and yummiest pie I have ever had. You will not be disappointed!
Slice 4-5 apples into a deep pie pan. Sprinkle with 2/3 cup of brown sugar; dot with butter. Sprinkle with nutmeg (I don't own any so I do cinnamon); add 4 tblspoons of water. Make patties of 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of butter and 1 cup flour. Cover top of pie with patties. Bake 35 mins at 375 degrees.
I have noticed that if you use "fresh picked" apples, you don't always need as much water. I have never NOT used the 4 tblspoons of water, but it has been a little too "watery" at times.... so maybe it just depends on the apple type. We tend to pick a lot of fuji apples and I cook with them.
