Apple Pie

Choose your favorite (I like Cortland, Northern Spy, and Mutsu) apple. Peel, core and slice about six cups of apples. Add one cup sugar, one tsp cinnamon, a pinch of nutmeg, a pinch of cloves, and two Tbl. of flour and mix well. Pour into your favorite pie shell, and cut about two Tbl. of butter or margarine over the top of the apple mixture. Place the top crust over the apples; seal the edges to prevent juice from leaking out. Cut slits in the top crust and baking in hot oven 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake 45 minutes until apples are tender when pierced with a knife and the crust is lightly brown. Some folks like to sprinkle sugar on the top crust before baking. Enjoy apple pie every day, anyway.
