Lynnda's Story

The round flat apple pie featured in older cookbooks is an American classic. This pie shape was created by thrifty American colonists so that “a little would go a long way.” Apple Pye, of old England was made in a long deep dish called a “coffin”.

Ingredients

5 cups thinly sliced pared tart apples, about 5 medium
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup flour
2 tbsp. sugar
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
pastry for 9 inch two crust pie, homemade or store bought

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix apples, brown sugar, water and lemon juice in 2 quart pan. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer just til apples are tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Mix flour, sugar and salt; stir into apple mixture. Cook, stirring constantly til mixture thickens and boils. boil and stir 1 minute; remove from heat. Stir in vanilla and margarine. Cool.
2
Heat oven to 425. Prepare pastry. Turn apple mixture into pastry lined pie plate. Cover with top crust that has slits cut in it; seal and flute.
