Mile High Apple Pie
My mom adapted this from the Star of Texas cookbook.
- 6 large tart apples, peeled and sliced
- 9 in. unbaked pie crust
- 1 c. sugar
- 1 + tsp. cinnamon
- 3/4 c. flour
- 3/4 c. butter
Preheat oven to 425. Press crust into pie dish. Arrange apples in crust. Mix 1/2 c. of sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle over apples. Mix remaining 1/2 c. sugar with flour. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter until crumbly. Top pie with crumbles. Bake at 425 for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and continue to bake for 30-40 minutes more.
