"Best Ever" Fresh Apple Pie

My friend, Steve Keller (Our home teacher at the time) shared such an amazing apple pie with us once that I had to get the recipe. He said this was his dad's. It has definitely become a new favorite. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did! I think this was my favorite part of this years Thanksgiving dinner.

"Best Ever" Fresh Apple Pie (Thanks to Steve) Makes one Pie
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
dash of salt
(I also added pinch of lemon juice)
6 cups of peeled, sliced apples (I think I peeled about 5 or 6 apples)

Combine ingredients, mix well. Pour into unbaked pastry shell. Place another shell on top- flute the edges (which is an art I have never acquired- if anyone has tips please pass them on!) Bake at 350 for about 50 minutes (Steve said to check it at 30 or 40 minutes- mine was done at about 40.) Cover with foil the last 10 minutes.

If you're running short on pie crust, here is Steve recipe for a yummy crumble topping.

Crumble Topping
1 cup flour
1/2 cup firm margarine (or butter)
1/2 cup brown sugar packed
(Mix until crumbly and sprinkle over the pie's top.)
