  • 6 cups Granny Smith apples, or any other pie apple that you prefer

  • Place the pie crust (homemade or store bought) in a 9" pie plate. Pat the crust into the bottom and around the sides. Note: This recipe calls for the pie to be microwaved for 5 minutes before placing in the oven so be sure to use a microwavable pie plate. If one is not available, you can use a metal pie plate but you will have to bake it longer in the oven. Microwaving helps prevent the bottom crust from becoming soggy.
  • Trim overhang around the edges to 1/4". Place crust in the refrigerator while preparing the apples.
  • Peel, core, and slice the apples. Place in an acidic water bath consisting of 1/4 cup of lemon juice to 1 quart of water. This will keep the apples from turning brown.
  • Combine the sugar, flour, tapioca, and salt together in a small bowl. Stir until evenly distributed.
  • Remove the pie crust from the refrigerator and lightly flour the bottom of the crust. This will help prevent the crust from becoming soggy.
  • Pour the apples into the crust and then sprinkle the sugar mixture evenly over them. Dot the butter evenly on top of the apples.
  • Moisten the edges all around the crust and then cover the apples with the top crust. Press lightly around the edges.
  • Trim the overhang so that it is just slightly longer than the bottom crust. Crimp the edges all around the pie to seal the crusts together.
  • Make several slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape as the pie bakes. Sprinkle the top lightly with sugar.
  • Place in the microwave, on high, and cook for 5 minutes. Then place in an oven preheated to 350°F. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until filling is bubbling and the crust is nicely browned.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool at least 30 minutes before serving. If served warm, the filling may still be a little runny. It will thicken as it cools.
