Laurie's Apple Pie in the Sky
By Laurie Lenartowicz llenartowicz
I love the smell of my house when there is an apple pie baking. It seems to linger in the air for days.
I use Granny Smith apples as they always hold up very well for baking. If using a sweeter apple, decrease the amount of sugar by 1/8 of a cup. The Granny Smith apples are tart so the two sugars add a nice flavor that allows the taste of the apple to shine through, nicely.
I call it Apple Pie in the Sky because my family is always over the moon when I bake this dessert.
NOTE: Remove the foil from the edges of the crust 10 minutes before the pie is done to get a nice even color.

what kind of apple is good for apple pie, besides the granny smith apples.

Gala, Golden Delicious, Empire, Honey Crisp, Cortland. All of these stand up well to baking. Good luck!
