Apple Pie

This is a recipe I got from my friend, Doug Bush, organ chair at Brigham Young University and amateur pie baker. This recipe will cradle and cover 1 9" pie. For a larger, deep-dish pie, I increase the recipe by 1½ to 1 cup more flour and the other ingredients correspondingly. The techniques are largely his, though over the years, I've gone my own way on some things.

¾ cup brown sugar
¼ cup all-purpose flour
¾ tsp cinnamon, ground
pinch cloves, nutmeg
7 medium apples

1. Mix dry ingredients in a very large bowl.

2. Slice apples and toss with dry ingredients.

3. Arrange in crust. Bake in 400° oven about 60 minutes.
