Ingredients:  
6 apples (pared, cored & sliced)**
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tsp butter

Directions:
Directions:
Line pie plate with crust. Fill the shell with the apples. Mix sugar, nutmeg, salt, cinnamon and lemon juice. Sprinkle over apples and dot with butter.
Cover with the other half of crust- seal and bake.
(The Betty Crocker cookbook has a very good 2-page visual lesson on how to work with crust, fill a pie, etc. To begin with, you might want to use the Betty Crocker pie sticks from the grocery store (which I keep on hand and use when I'm in a hurry). They're good and you can try the start-from-scratch dough when you have time to experiment)
**I have found if apples are big, you may not need 6. If 6 apples look skimpy when sliced, add more. You want your pie shell nice and full because they "cook down" while baking.

First made with Northern Spy apples while in Indiana; they were huge and just one apple made a pie.

This is my favorite pie! I have fond memories of eating it with ice cream at Westfork. ~Leigh

Mom made and froze Jonathon-apple pie fillings every October. Dad loved his piece of pie with a thick slice of sharp cheddar cheese. I love the Jonathon apples. ~ Marg

Have never had another that held a candle to this. ~John

This is one of my absolute favorite recipes. When visiting Westfork I thought it was the perfect "grandparent dessert" because it was M.O.M's pie complemented by Opa's vanilla icecream. ~Erin
