"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Mary Holland


1 unbaked 9 inch pie crust
6-7 cups (about 6 apples) tart apples, peeled, cored and cut into thick slices
cup granulated sugar
teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Place unbaked pie crust in pie pan if using homemade or frozen. Prepare apples and put in bowl. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and flour. Gently combine flour mixture with apples and spoon into pie crust. Sprinkle with lemon juice.

cup brown sugar
cup flour
cup butter

Combine brown sugar, flour and then cut in butter to create a coarse mixture (about the size of peas). Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the top of the apples. Slide pie into a brown paper bag (like a grocery bag) and fold the open end over twice and secure with a large metal paper clip.
Bake on a cookie sheet at 425 degrees for one hour. Carefully split open the bag and allow pie to cool on wire rack.
(Cooking inside the paper bag helps the apples to heat thoroughly without over baking the crust.)
