Real Apple Pie by Karla Remillard


7 or 8 medium Golden Delicious Apples

½ c flour

1 c sugar

1 tsp Cinnamon

¼ tsp Nutmeg

½ c water

2 tbs margarine



Peel, core and slice apples.

Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg in a saucepan.  Stir in water.  Add apples and cook, stirring gently, until the apple mixture comes to a boil.

Pour apples mixture into a pastry-lined pie pan.  Dot with margarine.  Cover with crumb topping (see directions below).

Bake at 400° for 10 minutes then reduce heat to 350° and bake for an additional 20 minutes or until filling is bubbly.




½ c flour

½ c brown sugar (packed)

½ tsp cinnamon

3 tbs margarine


Use a fork or pastry blender to combine flour, brown sugar and cinnamon in a mixing bowl.  Cut in margarine.  Mixture should resemble coarse crumbs.  Sprinkle evenly over the pie filling prior to baking.
