Here is the Apple Pie Recipe!

About 14-16 granny apples peeled and cut up
3 c. Sugar
2 TBL lemon juice
1/2 c. Cornstarch
2 tsp. cin
1 tsp nutmeg
1 dash of cloves
1/4 c. cold butter
1 egg beaten
2 pie crusts! (you can use pillsberry or make your own, I made my own)

Lay one pie crust over 9" pie pan. Mix first 7 ingred in a bowl. Pour over crust. Cut butter and lay over filling. The filling will be alot, all heaped above the pie plate! BIG pie for big family!! Ha!! Top with 2nd crust. Lightly brush beaten egg over top of 2nd crust. Cover with foil. Bake 400 degrees for 15 min. Remove foil a d reduce temp to 350. Bake for about 45 min. (I always sit the pie pan on a cookie sheet to catch the spills.

For my pie crust, I use about 2 cups of flour and some salt. You can use butter or shortening, about 1/2 cup and cut into flour til crumbly. Next pour ice water without the ice, haha and make a moist dough. Turn on floured counter and divide into 2 portions. Roll out and place crusts accordingly in pans.

Top with ice cream or fresh whipped cream!!! ( and coffee)

You always do things so prettily. I love the dip in the pumpkin. I never had daughters, only sons, but I suspect the girls help you with those things. So nice! All my boys know how to cook, clean, sew etc because I taught them. You just never know and one of them is raising a son on his own. So it's helpful to know things like that no matter what your gender.

I'd like to hear a few stories about the newlyweds. Did they take a honeymooon, where are they living, do they both have jobs, what church did they find? That kind of thing if you feel like sharing. It was a beautiful love story and I'd like to hear more.
