Apple Pie

5-6 cups apples, peeled and thinly sliced
2 tsp lemon juice
2 TBL flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1-2 TBL butter
Prepared Pie Crust

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Peel, core and slice apples into 1 inch pieces and put into a large bowl. Add lemon juice to keep apples from browning.

In a seperate small bowl, thoroughly mix flour, salt, sugars, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour sugar mixture over apples and mix well. Put one prepared pie crust in pie pan. Put apple mixture in the pie pan. Cut butter into pieces and distribute over top of apples.  Cover with top pie crust.

Cut several small slices in top crust so steam can escape. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over top.  Cover edges with foil to prevent burning. Place in oven for 25 minutes with foil on edges.  Remove foil and cook another 20-25 minutes.

How to Freeze Apple Pie
Line a good, sturdy pie plate with foil, molding to its shape, and put the apple filling (prepared above) in it. Put this in the freezer until it is frozen solid for four hours.

Once frozen solid, wrap it with more tin foil and store in a zip lock bag. You can store in the freezer for up to a year.

How to Prepare Frozen Apple Pie
Line the same pie plate that was used to freeze the filling with an unbaked pie crust. Place the frozen apples into the pie plate. Dot with butter and put on the top crust.

Once you have the edges sealed, brush the top with milk and sprinkle with a little bit of sugar and cinnamon. Be sure to cut some slits in the upper crust.

Loosely cover the pie with with foil and bake it at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Then remove the foil and bake for another 40-55 minutes, until the curst is brown and the filling is bubbly.
