Paper Bag Apple Pie

Football games, 

         This, by the way, is our daughter Lisa on her horse, Sundance, escorting Curtis’ Warrior football team into the stadium for a Friday night game.)

cool weather, and warm sweaters. 

                                                 Falling leaves, yellow chrysanthemums,                             

and crisp apples.       

I’ve decided fall is my favorite time of the year.  A friend shared this recipe with me many years ago.  This is the season for you to try it.  Enjoy!   

Paper Bag Apple Pie       


  • 6 to 7 cups of peeled, sliced apples
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup plus 2 tblsp. flour
  • ½ tsp. nutmeg
  • Unbaked 9-inch pie shell
  • 2 tblsp. lemon juice
  • ½ cup of softened butter or margarine

Combine apple slices, ½ cup of the sugar, and 2 tablespoons of the flour; add nutmeg and toss well to mix.  Turn into the pie shell and sprinkle with the lemon juice.  Combine remaining ½ cup sugar with the remaining ½ cup flour, rub in the butter, and sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples.

Place pie in large, heavy paper bag.  Fold the end over twice and fasten with paper clips.  Place on cookie sheet. 

Bake in 425 degrees oven for 1 hour.

This is delicious!  It’s an old Vermont recipe.

    Hey Liz,
    I bake my ham in a paper bag, but never thought of baking a pie in one! It makes sense though and would keep it moist and keep the crust from over browning. Thanks!
