Blue Ribbon Apple Pie

Last year, I won a blue ribbon for this apple pie.

The recipe is adapted from my high school culinary teacher, Mrs. Carlisle.

Start with her pie dough.

Of course, you have to pick your own apples:

Peel, core and slice about 10 medium sized apples. In a bowl, combine them with 3/4 cup sugar, 1 Tbs. cinnamon and 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. Let the apples mingle with the sugar and spice.

Arrange the slices on top of the pie dough in the dish like this, if you have those OCD tendancies like me or just pile them in ;)

Cut 1 Tbs. butter or margarine into small cubes and dot the top of the apples.

Place the second pie dough on top of the buttered apple slices and seal the edges. You can get decorative or just use a fork. Make sure to cut slits or holes in the top to let the steam escape.

Bake in a 425F degree oven for 50-60 minutes until golden brown and juices are bubbly. If at all possible, let cool for a half hour. Slice and enjoy.
