My cousin who lives down the road, brought me some beautiful Winesap apples from his tree. I happened to have one store-bought pie crust (the refrigerated rolled kind) and this is what I did:


  • Refrigerated Pie Crust
  • 4 cups of apples, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • dash of salt
  • 1 1/3 Tbsp butter
  • milk or cream to brush over crust


  • Un-roll crust as per package directions and lay into a 9" pie plate, which has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • Do not trim or crimp crust.
  • In a mixing bowl, put about 4 cups apples, peeled and sliced.
  • Sprinkle with lemon juice (how much depends on how tart the apples are...about 2 tsp)
  • In a small bowl, combine 1-1/2 Tbsp flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 3/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and a dash of salt.
  • Pour the dry ingredients over the apples and toss to combine well.
  • Turn mixture into the pie shell, doming it in middle.
  • Dot filling with about 1-1/2 Tbsp butter.
  • Fold over the excess crust onto the filling, then brush the crust with a little milk or cream, and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake for about an hour, until crust is a deep golden brown, and apples are tender.
  • Cool slightly, before serving wedges with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
  • The added bonus to making this dessert is that the house smells wonderful while it's baking!!
