    I got 2 fresh bushels of Mac and Granny apples.

    So whats your favorite apple pie or another pie recipe? I just want to try something new with the apples.

    Heres mine

    Pastry for 2 crust (9 inch pie), unbaked
    6 to 7 peeled sliced apples
    2 tbsp. flour
    1/2 c. granulated sugar
    1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/4 tsp. nutmeg
    1/8 tsp. ginger
    Dash of salt
    1 tbsp. butter

    Line 9 inch pie pan with pastry. Simmer apple slices in 1/4 cup water until slightly tender, about 5 minutes. Cool and heap in lined pie pan. Combine flour, sugar, spices, and salt; sprinkle over apple slices. Sprinkle lemon juice. Dot with butter. Adjust top crust and slits for steam to escape. Seal edges. Bake in preheated 450 degree oven for 10 minutes, then reduce oven to 350 degrees. Bake 45 minutes longer until crust is golden brown. Serve pie warm or cold with cream, ice cream, whipped cream, or Cheddar cheese. Makes 8 servings.

    1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
    Sugar, for dusting
    1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored, and quartered
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    Apricot jam

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    Crimp seams of puff pastry together with fingertips. Dust both sides of pastry with sugar. Using a rolling pin, roll pastry in each direction to close seams. Using a sharp pizza cutter (and tracing a small plate) cut out 2 circles of pastry. Place pastry circles on a chilled sheet pan and let cool in the refrigerator for a few minutes.

    Using a vegetable peeler cut wafer thin apple slices. Put apple slices in lemon-juice-spiked water.

    Flip pastry circles over on the sheet pans and poke them with a fork to provide an outlet for steam. Put parchment paper on the pan underneath the pastry circles. Sprinkle pastry with sugar and arrange apple slices on top.

    Bake in the middle of the oven for 15 to 20 minutes. Poke the crust; if it feels soft it needs more time in the oven.

    Microwave some apricot jam for 30 seconds. Dab (don't brush) the jam on the tarts. Cool tarts at least 4 hours and seal in a resealable plastic bag. Serve at room temperature or heat in the microwave and top with ice cream.
    Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

    I'm sorry, these are flawed unless you make your own crust.

    Flour and butter ...begin cutting it in. When you're done, roll it out.

    Homemade crust makes the pie.

    I agree, hommade crust all the way. As bad as it sounds, crisco makes the best crust-totally evil health wise.

    Blueberry Peach is a great combination, as is Apple-cranberry, Strawberry rhubarb....I used to make pie all the time.

    I should get the recipe for my cousin's surgar free ricotta pie. Its soo good its not even funny. And her apple low sugar pie. If I did a blind test you would think hers had all the sugar. Its just that good.

    She lways whips up the ricotta one when i go to her house after riding with her family.
