Apple Pie.

Since we're sharing pie recipes that we made for Thanksgiving, I thought I'd go ahead and add the apple pie recipe we made. Apple pie seems all American, and fruit pies are always a favorite. When I lived in the Philippines, my mom would make mock apple pies using green mango's. You could hardly tell that it was not really apple that you were eating! 

Apple Pie

6               Medium sized apples 
3/4  cup    White sugar
1/4  tsp     Cinnamon
1/4  tsp     Nutmeg
1/8  tsp     Salt
1     Tbsp  Cornstarch
2     Tbsp  Butter

Peel and thinly slice apples. Sift sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt over apples and stir gently until well coated. Place apples in layers in unbaked pie shell, dotting each layer with bits of butter. If apples lack flavor, sprinkle with fresh lemon or orange juice and zest. If apples are dry, add 2 tablespoons of water or cream. Cover with pricked upper crust and bake at 425 degrees for about 30 to 40 minutes. For this Thanksgiving pie, we tried to make a turkey cutout on the top!
