Apple Pie

Throwing together 21 plus apple pies on a cool crisp fall day has somewhat become a tradition with my mom and I. My parents have 5 apple trees and always seem to have an abundance so, what better way to get rid of them and make apple pies and maybe a few apple crisp!! This year we had quite the crew helping out which made the process speed by! My mom has the recipe which she has had forever and it is so simple and very yummy.

Apple Pie
Yeilds: 4 Pies

4 - 9 inch pie tins ( we used prepared crust)
3 cups sugar
1 cup flour
2 tsp. Nutmeg
2 tsp. Cinnamon
24 cups apples (Peeled and Sliced)
8 Tbls. Butter

Peel and core enough apples to make 24 cups. Place in a large mixing bowl with the Sugar, Flour, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Mix well. Place 6 cups of mixture in each prepared pie tin. Place 2 Tablespoons of butter on each pie mixture. 
Wet the edges of dough so it sticks better. Place rolled out dough ever apple mixture. Take a knife and cut around tin to get excess dough. Take a fork and press edges together all the way around. Brush a little water on top of pie and sprinkle with sugar. Cut about 3 slits on top of pie for ventilation. You may want to wrap the bottom with foil in case of a spill over.
Bake at 425 for about 40 to 50 minutes or until lightly browned.

Here is our apple peeler in action. If you do not have an apple peeler and plan on making alot of pies I suggest you buy one! It will make your life so much easier. They are cheap and totally worth it. You can pick them up almost anywhere just like this one at Bed Bath and Beyond.
Once you have peeled your apples and placed them in the bowl you can go ahead and add the sugar, flour, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Mix well.
Note: These are very very tasty just like this with sugar and cinnamon!! YUM You may want to throw in a few extra apples for snacking purposes.
We took the lazy way out and bought some pre-made pie crusts and dough. . 
You still had to roll out the dough but it was already made so that made it nice and easy
Pies filled and sprinkled with sugar ready to go in the oven.
Here is our crew working hard!!
Flash was also working hard taking a nap while protecting his raw hide.
Now it is time to enjoy some warm apple pie with vanilla bean ice cream. YUM Yum
We made a total of 21 apple pies and each took home some. I kept one out and froze the rest for a later date.
