Brown bag apple pie

25 May

This is the best pie recipe I’ve ever tasted.  By cooking it in a damp brown bag, none of the crust becomes blackened, and the pie bakes evenly without char.  This recipe comes from Brandon’s mom (originally sent to him in an email), so I’ve written it out below.

5 apples, peeled, sliced (preferably green)
9-inch pie shell
1.5 cups sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup and 5 tbsp. flour
3 tbsp. water
1/2 cup butter
1 brown paper grocery bag

Slice apples in pie shell.  Combine 1 cup sugar, salt, cinnamon and 5 tbsp. flour.  Sprinkle water and flour mixture over apples.  In a bowl combine margarine, 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup flour.  Sprinkle mixture over pie.  Wet brown bag on the outside and place pie inside the bag.  Bake 1 hour at 425 F degrees.
