Apple Pie

Serves: 8-10

6-7 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced (see tips)
3/4 c. sugar
2 t. flour
1 t. cinnamon
1/8 t. nutmeg
1/4 c. butter
2 pie crusts, homemade or store-bought

Lay one pie crust in the bottom of pie pan. In a bowl or large plastic bag, combine apples, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix well. Pour into pie pan. Cut butter into squares and place on top of apples. Lay second pie crust on top of apples and pinch sides together. Cut a few small holes in the top crust. Bake at 375 degrees for 45-50 minutes.

Tips: I know that making a homemade apple pie does not seem like an easy task for a mom with little time on her hands. However, I found a trick. Enter Pampered Chef's Apple Peeler/Slicer/Corer . This handy contraption peels, slices and cores an apple in a minute (honestly!). You could easily have all 6-7 apples needed for this recipe done in 10 minutes. I always avoided making homemade apple pies because it took me so long to prepare the apples. It also slices the apples very thin (1/8 inch) so they all get cooked and you're not left with crunchy apples in your pie.
