Bramely Apple Pie
This is the best we’ve tasted! Enjoy Raintree horticulturist Theresa Knutsen’s recipe: The Filling: 6 cups Bramley apples, peeled and sliced. ½ cup sugar, 1 tbsp corn starch, 1 tsp cinnamon, 2/3 tsp allspice. Mix dry ingredients, blend with apples, let stand 10 minutes and then put in pie crust. Dot with 1 tbsp butter or margarine. Top with lattice pie crust. Bake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes, 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
The Crust: 2 cups flour, ½ tsp salt, 3/4 cup shortening, 5 tbsp water: Sift flour and salt. Cut shortening into flour until thoroughly blended, gently cut in water until dough clumps together. Makes one 8 to 10 inch pie with top and bottom crust.
