Walked to school and home with Ruth Ray. I went swimming. Swam 18 lengths. Had apple pie tonight.
|Apple Pie has been a favorite American dessert from pioneer|
time to the present, with recipes varying according to the
preferences of individual cooks. Following is Ruth's recipe:
Pare and slice thin 6 or 7 tart apples. Add 1/2 cup white sugar and
1/2 cup brown sugar mixed with a dash of salt, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon,
and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg.
Fill 9-inch pastry lined pie pan with mixture. Dot with butter and sprinkle
2 tablespoons water over all. Cut slits in top crust and adjust.
Bake in hot oven (450 degrees) for 10 minutes, then in moderate oven
(350 degrees) for about 40 minutes.
