Here is my Grandma Wells’ apple pie recipe:

8-9 apples (not sliced too thin)
2/3 cup sugar
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
4 pats margarine

Mix apple slices, cinnamon and nutmeg together.  Let stand 15-20 minutes.  Pour in pie crust [I guess we’re on our own on how to make the crust!] and put pats of margarine on top.  Put slits in top crust.  Bake on 425 for 20 minutes then turn down to 350 for 40 minutes.  Make sure to put the pie on a cookie sheet, so the juices won’t spill in oven.
