Old Fashioned Apple Pie Recipe

Ingredients:

2 9-inch pie crusts (one for the top crust, one for the bottom crust)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Dash of salt
2 tablespoons butter
6 cups thinly sliced and cored apple


Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

2. Mix sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour, and salt. Stir in the apples.

3. Place into pie crust, dot with butter. Cover with top crust, and slit evenly to let steam escape. Seal the top crust to the bottom by pinching the edges together.

3. Cover edge of the crust with a three inch strip of aluminum foil.

4. Bake 40-50 minutes, until crust is brown and juice begins to bubble through top.

 

SWEET POTATOES

Ingredients:

8-10 pounds of fresh sweet potatoes

Butter

24 ounce jar of applesauce (regular supermarket size)

Spices: cinnamon, nutmeg, etc.

 

Directions:

1. Bake sweet potatoes in the oven until very soft (about an hour, but it depends on the size). When you can, scoop out the insides. (This is much easier than peeling or even buying cans.)

2. Add 1 stick of butter or margarine in small pieces and let it melt.

3. Add 1 large jar applesauce in 2 installments just to make sure the mixture doesn’t get too runny.

4. Add 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons of spices, taste as you go.

5. Mash everything together until well blended. Bake about 20 – 30 minutes at 325.
