      Tammra Redford from Broken Arrow, OK, 2nd place, Tulsa State Fair

      1 Package Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust

      5 Gala apples, cored, peeled and sliced

      3/4 cup sugar

      1/2 cup flour

      1 tsp. cinnamon

      1/4 tsp. salt

      1/2 tsp. nutmeg

      3 T. butter, sliced

      • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. F.
      • Line a 9-inch pie pan with one of the crusts.
      • Stir together sugar, flour and spices.
      • Toss with the sliced apples in the sugar/flour mixture and turn the apple mixture into the prepared pie pan.
      • Dot with slices of butter.
      • Cover with the top pie crust. Pinch the outside edges to seal. Cut vents in the top crusts.
      • Shield the outside edges of the crust with narrow pieces of aluminum foil.
      • Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the foil shields for the last 10 minutes of baking.

      NOTE: May decorate by using the Pillsbury Pie Crust as cut outs. I used cookie cutters that were shaped like leaves and dipped the cut outs in brown sugar to top the pie.

      Yield: 1 pie
