Gramma's Apple Pie


When my Gramma was here last month we enjoyed a cooking/baking day together.   We made lots of fun stuff together, and this recipe was one of my favourites (oh who am I kidding, all of Gramma's recipes are my favourites!).
Ingredients
- 2 disks of pastry (2 pie crusts)
- 6 apples, cored, peeled and sliced
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/2 cup sugar
- cinnamon, to taste
- 2 tbsp butter
Directions: 
Roll out pie crust and place in a pie dish.  I like to use my deep dish ceramic pie plate for this recipe.
 
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. 
Core, peel and slice apples and toss with flour, sugar, and cinnamon.  Place apple mixture in pie crust and add a few dabs of butter on top.  
Add the top pastry and cut a few slits in the centre with a fork.  My Gramma likes to cute leaf designs with leftover pastry to place on the pie.  This is great for hiding any cracks or tears in the dough. 
Cook for 45 minutes, .  Reduce heat to 350 for approx 30 minutes or until crust is golden brown.
Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream (here's a shot of Gramps with his piece).
