Life was always good when mom made her apple pie. Her original recipe called for making the crust, but we modern folks can use one of the crusts found in the refrigerator section of the local market.

6 c. pared, cored apples, sliced 1/4-inch thick
2/3 c. granulated sugar
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. butter or margarine

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat oven to 425. Roll out one layer of the pie crust and press into a 9-inch pie plate. Fill the pie shell with the apples. Mix together sugar, nutmeg, salt, cinnamon and lemon juice. Sprinkle over the apples. Dot the apples with the butter or margarine. Moisten the edge of the bottom crust with cold water. Roll the remaining layer about 1-inch larger than the diameter of the pie plate. Fold in half and make 3 slits, each about 1/2-inch in length, in the center. Adjust over the filling and fold under the edge of the lower crust. Press the edges together. Trim any excess crust.

If you want a glazed surface, brush the top of the pie with a mixture of cream, melted butter or slightly beaten egg white. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake 40 minutes.
