Winning Apple Pie created by Monkey  Peanuts Mom

We love this Apple Pie at our House. In fact it's the only one I make. I love the cinnamon and nutmeg in the pie crust for a nice added touch. This recipe is from a Land O' Lakes Cookbook that I have.

    I made the filling portion only of this recipe to use in two other recipes I was making that called for a can of apple pie filling. I just added a little water to prevent burning and let them simmer on the stove until tender. I have always had trouble getting the portions for apple pie filling correct...but this is it! Thank you so much...after 47 years I can finally make an apple pie!
