  • Our recipe for years............
    5 large Granny Smith apples (we like these for their tartness)
    1/2 cup sugar
    3 tablespoons flour
    1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
    dash salt
    optional - handful of golden raisins

    Before covering with top crust dot top with 1 tablespoon butter.

    Don't know how this will freeze. I would think it would get very watery when defrosted. GL!

  • My "recipe" depends on my apples - I slice, taste, and the tarter they are the more sugar I add. Enough cinnamon to look pretty & taste good, and about 1 Tablespoon cornstarch per 1/2 cup of sugar. Put in your crust, top with another crust, spread an egg wash over and sprinkle on a little more cinnamon & sugar, poke some vent holes and bake til the top crust is a deep golden color.
