Ingredients:  
8 generous cups of apples (use pie apples like Macintosh - do NOT use Delicious or Granny Smith.)
1 to 1 1/4 c. sugar
1/4 c. flour
1 to 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. butter (approx.)

Directions:
Directions:
Peel and slice apples into a bowl of cold, salted water and set aside while you prepare crust. (See separate recipe for crust.) In large bowl, mix together sugar, flour and cinnamon. Drain the apples well and add to dry ingredients, stirring gently to coat apples. Pour apple mixture into prepared pie crust in 9" pie plate (deeper pie plates work better.) Dot the filling with pats of butter, cover with top crust & seal edges. Cut vent slits in top crust to vent pie and sprinkle sugar lightly over the top crust. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes, then turn oven down to 350 for an additional 35-45 minutes until filling is bubbling gently through the crust vents and a thin paring knife inserted in the pie encounters only well-cooked apples! If the pie edges are browning too quickly, cover with strips of tin foil.
