Apple Cream Pie



Aunt Val told me about a great book...The Little Heathens...and one of the best things about it was this recipe!


Get two Marie Callendar's unbaked pie shells...in the freezer at Safeway or Lucky's.

(of course you could make your own pie crust...but these are exceptionally satisfactory and just as fattening!)


Mix:

1 1/2 C sugar

1/2 t salt

1/3 C flour

2 t cinnamon


Pat about 3 T of this mixture into the bottom of each of the uncooked pie shells. Then fill with peeled and sliced apples. I used Granny Smith...about 8 of them (medium sized). Pile the apples high; they sink down when cooked.

Sprinkle the rest of the sugar/flour mix over the apples; sprinkle with a little more cinnamon if you want. Then pour:

1 C heavy cream (whipping cream) over each pie. (1 pint of cream for whipping)

Bake at 425 for about 15 minutes; then lower temp to 350 and bake about another hour. I lay a piece of foil over the top of the pies to keep them from browning too much.
