My very favorite apple pie, since childhood!! For the crust I always use Dad's Mazola No-Roll Pastry Shell. Dad always used Granny Smith apples, but I've found that Pink Lady apples also work beautifully in this pie--sometimes I use a combination of Granny Smith and Pink Ladies. Don't forget the vanilla ice cream! (Note: for those of you uncomfortable using a brown paper bag in the oven, you can omit that step and bake w/o the bag- - it's quite good that way too, -but- it won't be quite the same. Baking in the bag really does produce the most amazing pie!). I hope you enjoy this pie as much as we do!
