Apple Pie

This recipe is from my mother-in-law, Marjorie Holt Jones. It was passed down to my wife and it is her standard for apple pie. It is a bit different from other pies because of the inclusion of the pecans.

Preparation: 1 hour 30 minutes Heirloom Recipe
Serves 4 to 6 persons Marjorie Holt Jones
Ingredients:
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (as desired)

  2. Pare and core apples; slice thin. Add sugar mixed with flour, salt and spices. Add nuts if desired
  3. Fill pastry-lined pan. Dot with butter.
  4. Add and adjust top crust. Crimp edges and make flutes to seal crust edges. Slice top crust with knife to make steam vents.
