Mile High Apple Pie

(Laura Langston & Lindsey Gardiner)

10 Granny Smith apples
6 oz. white sugar
3 oz. plain flour
1 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
a pinch ground cloves
a pinch of salt
1 oz. butter
prepared pastry for a double crust pie
1 egg beaten
1 tbsp. water

Preheat oven to 190 C.  Grease a large pie dish.  Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface.  Line the pie dish with the pastry, keeping half for the top crust.  Core, peel and slice the apples.  Mix the sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, salt and butter.  Add the apples, mix well, and pour mixture into the pastry dish.  Dot with butter.  Cover with top crust, sealing carefully.  Make slits.  Beat the egg and water.  Brush over the top of the pastry.  Cover the dish with kitchen foil and bake for 25 – 30 minutes.  Remove the foil and bake another 25 - 30 minutes or until crust is nicely browned.  Take your Mile-High Apple Pie out of the oven.
