Tempt My Tummy Tuesday

I ran accross this by way of Cheaper than Therapy and her friend Walking by Faith ......I love recipes!!!!! Since we went Apple Pickin' last week and made homemade apple pie, I thought that this would be my first recipe.....

5-6 apples
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon apple spice seasoning
2 tablespoons of flour
1 pkg pre-made pie shells (the ones that aren't cooked and you roll out)
1/4 stick of butta'

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Cut the apples into 1/4 inch slices
In a mixing bowl, combine sugar, flour and apple pie spice, mix thoroughly. Pour the spice mix over the apples and stir until the apples are coated.

Line one crust in a 9 inch deep dish pie pan. Place the apples in the pie crust. Dot the apple filling evenly with butter. Fit the top crust over the apples. Press the crust down gently and cut 3 or 4 slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape while the pie bakes

I normally use the leftover little bit of dough to create a shape.....the girls picked out the heart. I just used a cookie cutter. Then I lightly 'baste' the top of the pie with an egg white and sprinkle it with sugar......

Bake in the preheated oven 50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Check the pie after the first 30 minutes of cooking: if the crust is already browned reduce the heat to 350 degrees F to allow the apples to cook without the crust burning.
I use a pie crust sheild on the pie when I see that its starting to brown....
