Apple Pie

This is real easy. Well, except for the peeling and slicing of the apples, that is. It's real good. You'd wanna make this over and over again. I promise. Serves 8.

6 apples, cored, peeled and sliced
1 tsp cinnamon (or nutmeg or allspice, whatever you have)
2 tbsp flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp oil (for brushing)

Preheat oven to 350F.

Just mix everything up together and spoon into your pie shell.

You can cover the top with another shell and just crimp the sides down. Or you can do a lattice-type top like I did.

First off, cut your rolled out dough into strips. You can use a pizza cutter or just a butter knife. Got to do it carefully. Then lay them over your pie.

And weave the remaining strips to form a lattice pattern.

Tuck the edges in and you can press a fork along the sides to make a design too.

 Brush top of pie with some oil to keep it moist and pliable. Bake your pie for about 45 minutes,  brushing the top with oil if it's looking dry, till crust is golden. Let cool for a few hours before serving.

9 points a slice. Try it.

You know you want to.
