Traditional Granny Smith Apple Pie
It's not Thanksgiving with out mom's traditional apple pie! Mom prides her self on stuffing her pies with more fruit than the usual bakery restaurant bought pies so you can always tell her apple pies based on the big domed top crust.
8 to 10 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
pie shell and top crust
Put a little water in the bowl with the apples and sprinkle a little sugar and some cinnamon over the top. Mix well. Put into the pie shell and put the top crust on. Crinch the sides closed using your thumb and first two fingers or a fork. Put a small hole in the middle of the top to let the steam escape. Bake at 350 about 50 minutes or until the pie crust looks done -- slightly golden and flaky dry.
