    Looking for a good old fashion apple pie recipe. I dont want it to be "lite" or "reduced calorie" or anything like that. I want something like grandma use to make!

    My grandmother used to bake her apple pie in a brown paper bag in the oven. If you try this, make sure not to let the bag touch the oven. Once her's did and it caught on fire. The pie tasted like it had been BBQed.

    Stouffer's Dutch Apple Pie

    This recipe for Dutch Apple Pie is from Stouffer's in Cleveland, Ohio. Abraham and Lena Stouffer started serving this pie in 1922 at their dairy counter in the Arcade Bldg downtown. The filling makes a cream and cinnamon sauce.

    1 c flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/3 c shortening
    2 1/2 - 3 T ice water

    4 c peeled, cored and cubed Jonathon, Winesap or McIntosh apples
    1/8 tsp ground cinnamon
    1 3/4 c sugar
    1/4 c flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    3 T milk
    6 T light cream

    In a medium bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Add water; mix lightly with a fork until dough forms ball. Cover and chill thoroughly.

    Preheat oven to 375°F. On lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Line pie plate, taking care not to stretch dough. Trim 1/2 inch beyond edge of pie plate; fold top edge under; flute edge.

    Spread apples evenly in pie shell; sprinkle with cinnamon. In a small bowl, combine remaining ingredients; beat at medium speed of mixer for 8 - 10 minutes. Pour evenly over apples.

    Bake 1 1/4 hours or until golden brown. Serve warm.

    The lady that posted this recipe owns a catering business and was kind enough to share some of her favorite recipes.

    This pie is a little more work than most apple pies but it is sooooo worth it. When I make this pie to take to a family gathering it is always the first dessert to go.

    I got this from site. She calls it Scrumptious Apple Pie - and it is!

    1 pie crust in pie pan, unbaked

    6 to 7 apples, peeled & sliced
    juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 cup sugar
    4 T flour
    1/4 tsp salt

    In a bowl, mix peeled apples, lemon juice, sugar, flour and salt. Set aside.

    1/2 cup flour
    1 1/2 sticks butter (3/4 cup)
    1 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup oats
    1/4 tsp salt

    Cut butter into the flour with a pastry cutter, then add in brown sugar, oats and salt. This is your crumb topping. Set aside.

    Add apples to prepared pie shell and top with crumb topping. (Place on a cookie sheet - its messy) Cover crust edge with aluminum foil and bake at 375°F for 25 minutes. Remove the foil from crust and and place back in the oven for 25 minutes.

    Sprinkle on top of the pie

    1/2 cup pecans, chopped

    Return pie to oven for 5 minutes. Remove the pie from the oven.

    Pour over the top.

    1/2 jar of caramel ice cream topping

    Allow the pie to cool slightly before serving.

    My sister makes this one which uses apple juice concentrate instead of sugar.

    Apple Pie (No Sugar)

    2 uncooked 9-in pie crust 2 tbs. Flour 1 tsp Cinnamon

    6 oz. frozen, unsweetened concentrate Apple Juice ¼ tsp Nutmeg

    2-3 tbsp Butter, cut into bits 4 Cooking Apples or Delicious Apples, mix red and yellow, peeled

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice apples into unbaked piecrust and if you have it, squeeze a lemon over the apples. Mix flour and spices in a small bowl while you bring the apple juice to a boil on stove or in microwave. Remove from heat and immediately whisk in flour and spices to form a paste. Spread over apples. Dot with butter or margarine . Cover with top crust. Crimp edges and cut several small vents. Brush with a small amount of water and sprinkle with nutmeg. Bake 40 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Let cool 15 minutes before slicing. Very good and low calorie! Serves 8.
