Best Apple Pie Recipe

Over the 4th of July weekend I had a piece of apple pie that I won’t soon forget. The crust was flakey and delicious; the fruit filling was tart and mouthwatering. I asked the baker of the pie if she would write down her recipe. Here it is:

    I’ve been using this recipe for years…though I haven’t found a crust that I absolutely love yet. But I can give you the recipe for the inside part!
    3 tablespoons butter
    4-5 pounds of assorted apples (I always get them from Soergels in Wexford in October)
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
    1 lemon, juiced
    4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
    Pinch ground nutmeg
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons half & half

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

    In a GIANT pan, melt the butter. Add the apples and saute for 4-5 minutes. Add the sugars, lemon juice and flour. Continue to saute for another few minutes, then add the nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt (If the liquid part is too runny, you can add more flour to thicken it. Sometimes I find that there’s just too much of it, so I pour some of it out). Mix well and remove from the heat. Let the apples cool.

    Prepare your dough (with your favorite recipe). Spoon the apples into the pie shell (there will be A LOT of apples) and cover with dough. Cut off the extra dough. Crimp the edges so top and bottom are sealed completely. Make a few slits in the dough. I usually take the extra dough and make a decoration for the top. Brush with half & half and sprinkle some sugar on it, put it in the oven, and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

    An apple pie without nutmeg and lemon juice is no apple pie in my eyes! (says this Michigan girl) I’m very intrigued by Carey’s inclusion of brushing the crust with half and half….

    A friend brought me some macintosh apples so I used them in this recipe and it was delicious!
