1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Dash of salt
8 cups thinly sliced pared tart
cooking apples (about 8 medium)
4 tablespoons whipping (heavy) cream

Heat oven to 425. Prepare pastry. Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Stir in apples. Turn into pastry-lined deep-dish pie plate, 9 x 1 1/2 inches, or regular pie plate, 10 x 1 1/2 inches. Drizzle with 3 tablespoons of the whipping cream.
