This recipe came out of my Granny's (Great Grandmother) 1941 New American Cookbook. I've tweaked it over the years with advice from my Grandmother. (Granny's daughter) It's beautiful and delicious and it's even better served warm with a scoop of French vanilla icecream on top!

Ingredients

2
unbaked pie shells
6 c
cored and peeled apples slices
2/3 c
sugar
1/4 c
all purpose flour
1/4 tsp
nutmeg
1/8 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1 Tbsp
lemon juice
2 Tbsp
butter
1
egg yolk, beaten

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place apple slices in a large bowl.
2
Mix sugar, flour, nut meg, salt, cinnamon and lemon juice. Sprinkle over apples and toss lightly.
3
Pour mixture into unbaked pie shell and dot with butter.
4
Remove second pie shell from tin and place on a floured board. Cut into 1-inch strips using a pizza cutter or sharp knife. Use the strips to create a basket weave crust over the top of pie. Press edges with a fork dipped in flour.
5
Place pie on foil or parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 40 minutes in a 425 degree, preheated oven.
6
Lightly brush the top of pie crust with egg yolk in the last five minutes of baking.
7
Remove from oven and cool.

My other Grandma makes a coconut cake every time I come to visit her in NC. I have a lot of fond memories of family get togethers and church pot lucks growing up too! I really enjoy those old recipes. Thanks for commenting Toni!

Amy, I love recipes like your Grandmother's. I often think about some of the old cakes and pies we had at church picnics years ago. It's funny how taste is burned into your memory. I recall especially, the Jam Cakes, Coconut Cakes, Pound Cakes and Fruit Cobblers.
