Directions:
Halve, core, and peel the apples. Sprinkle flour in the bottom of unbaked crust and c. sugar over the flour. Place the 4 apple halves, cut side down, at each position on a clock (noon, 3, 6, and 9), making sure they are not touching each other. Sprinkle the rest of the sugar and a light dusting of cinnamon over the apples. Fill the pie dish half full with water. Put a pat of butter onto each apple half. Bake at 350 F for 1 hour until you can flatten apples with a fork. Flatten them gently so you can submerge them in the syrup.

Personal Notes:
"This is a WEIRD recipe, but you will LOVE it. Jeff Pote's Mom once made a pie for a church "silent auction" that (since people had eaten and loved it in the past) sold for $50.00 for a rather small pie!" - Momma Nitchman
