Paper Bag Apple Pie
cool weather, and warm sweaters.
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!
- 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.
