Roll out top crust and place it over the apple mixture, cutting slits in several places for steam to escape. Moisten edges of crust well with cold water and adjust top crust. With fingers or fork, pinch two crusts together to make a tight seal around pie. Bake in a hot oven, 450 degrees, for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 45 to 50 minutes longer.

Plagiarism (just kidding), Member rhomp2002

You stole my apple pie recipe!!! Just kidding. I have been making apple pies this way for over 50 years and have yet to find someone who does not love this pie. The flour keeps it from being so runny and the lemon gives it a clear taste and the butter makes it richer. I sometimes sprinkle a little ginger in it as well but either way it is the best!!
