    Pie crust

    I teaspoon salt
    1 tablespoon sugar
    6 tablespoons butter
    6 tablespoons shortening
    6 to 8 tablespoons ice water

    Pie filling

    2/3 cups granulated sugar
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup water
    7 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples, about 3 pounds


    Mix in a large bowl:

    Looks great!! And I commend you on baking in a wood stove....took me a few tries to get that one down! Hope you do well in the contest. :greengrin:

    Some of the best apple pies I've made have been from "pasture apples"....plentiful and free, just took some time to peel those little things.

    I now live 2 miles from an orchard that has the best granny smiths as well as others, but I prefer the granny's for baking.
