Cuisine: German
Courses: Pies
Serves: 6 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 teaspoon 5mlCinnamon
2 tablespoons 30mlFlour
1 tablespoon 15mlButter or margarine
3/4 cup 148g / 5.2ozSugar - (1 c for tart apples)
4   McIntosh apples
4   Cortland apples

Recipe Instructions

Line bottom of pie plate with thin crust, let it drape over edge of plate. Slice apples into plate until it is HEAPED over top.

Mix the cinnamon and flour into the sugar and pour this over the apple slices. Dot the top with pieces of the butter.

Now cut around the plate to rid the excess crust. Roll out top crust and "smear" center (6 inches or so) with Crisco.

Make 5 or 6 slits near middle.. Sprinkle with flour.. Fold and put on pie. This makes it easier to place on pie. Unfold, then cut off to within 1 1/2 " any access and fold under the other crust making finger "folds" to seal all around.

Now walk to sink and holding pie in one hand and run it quickly under cold water to PARTIALLY rinse off flour.. This is what makes it "flaky". Cook at 350F for about 1 hour ..until golden brown and a sharp knife inserted feels NO firm apples.
