Ingredients:

  • 1 pie crust (uncooked) -- recipe here
  • 5-7 apples
  • 2 dessert spoons of sugar
  • 1 dessert spoon of butter
  • 1/2 lemon juice
  • Water

Recipe:

Garnish a pie dish with the pie crust (uncooked), and prick it. Refrigerate until using it.
Peal three of the apples and dice them. In a sauce pan, put the diced apples, the lemon juice, and 1/4 cup (measuring cup) of water, and the sugar. Cook on very low heat for about 40 minutes-1 hour, or until they can be mached with a fork. While cooking, stir and add water in small amounts when the water has evaporated. When the apple sauce is made, spread it into the pie crust.
Peal and slice the remaining apples and arrange the slices in circles onto the apple sauce.
Melt the butter and mix in the sugar. Pour over the apples.
Bake for 40-60 minutes, 360°F (185°C), pre-heated oven.
Enjoy warm or cold.
