Ingredients:  
2 pastrys for pie, 9 inch
5 cup apples, tart peeled, cored, and sliced
1/3 cup water
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp white flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp butter

Directions:
Directions:
Steam or simmer apples gently in water until they wilt and begin to become transparent. (This is a partial cooking only so that apples will cook thoroughly in the pie). Combine the sugar and other dry ingredients. Mix well. Spread half over the pastry-lined pie pan. Lift apples from cooking liquid into crust. Add 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. Sprinkle with remaining sugar mixture. Sprinkle pie filling with lemon juice and dot with butter. Roll, fit, and seal top crust. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar if desired. Bake on lower shelf of oven at 425 for 30-40 minutes, or until nicely browned. Note - Apple pie is only as good as the apples it is made with. Tart, juicy apples are desirable, and some judgment is necessary as to amount of sugar and thickening when sweeter, less juicy apples are used.
