Apple Pie

These delicious Apple Pie recipes are easy. Several are from my mother's and my recipe box. Also try the yummy Apple Pizza, which I got in the 1980's and is similar to an apple crumb pie, but you spread the crust on a pizza pan instead of a pie plate. Simple and delicious. Also see Applesauce recipes.

The tart green Granny Smith apples are generally used for pie baking, but sometimes I use the Winesap apples too, which are a favorite in our family. Yellow Delicious apples we like too, they are very flavorful and the skin is not so tough.

Apple Pie Tip
- If the juice from your apple pie runs over in the oven, shake some salt on it, which causes the juice to burn to a crisp so it can be removed.

Mix first 4 ingredients. Cream sugar and butter, add eggs and sour milk. Beat and add dry ingredients to it a 1/2 cup at a time. Add apples and nuts. Bake at 325 for 45 minutes. The recipe calls for an 8x8x2 in pan but I found for this size pan it had to be cooked a little longer. Just check it occasionally. The dough should be of a consistency of biscuit dough.

Did you know that apple dolls were a child's favorite toy in early Colonial America? They dried the apple and carved a face, put it on a stick and the dolls were easily dressed.
