This is a recipe I found using macintosh apples that are my husbands favorite. They are a less tart, quicker cooking apple.
5 cups sliced peeled Macintosh apples
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
3 tbls.minute tapioca
Measure in a bowl:
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
Cut in with pastry cutter:
2/3 cup crisco
6 level tbls. ice cold water and blend in with
the flour mixture
Divide into 2 balls and roll out one crust on floured
board. Place bottom crust in pie pan
Add apples evenly and dot with butter.
Roll out top crust and place over the pie.
Trim ,seal edges together and then crimp .
Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
