This recipe is a mixture of that from both sets of parents, and was partly based on the Betty Crocker cookbook. It has a top crumb crust, rather than a full crust. pastry for 9 inch one-crust pie 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup flour 1 tsp ground cinnamon dash of salt 8 cups thinly sliced pared tart apples (about 8 medium or 6 large) ingreg. for crumb crust: 1/2 cup sugar 3/4 c. flour 1/3 c. butter or margarine 1 tsp cinnamon 1 tsp nutmeg maybe a pinch of cloves and mace Heat oven to 450 degrees. Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon & salt in large bowl. Stir in apples. Put apple-mixture into pastry-lined pie plate. (You may want to press apples down firmly -- they shrink a LOT!!! You need a real mound of apples to end up with a decent pie). Mix sugar and flour for crumb crust in medium bowl. Cut in margarine; add spices. Put crumbs on top of pie -- you'll probably need to press them onto apples to keep them from falling off. Bake for 10 minutes; then lower to 350 and bake for 40 more. Check for doneness with fork.
