Cat Lady No. 58...Sweetie Pies

Cat Lady and Baker Amanda is known far and wide across the county for her pastries. Each morning she wakes up at 4 a.m. and heads for her bakery, The Sweetie Pie, where she is greeted by alley cat Delilah.

Here is her secret recipe (and the secret is to use three different apples: granny smith, golden delicious and gravenstein). This pie is pretty sensational, but Delilah knows she will always be Amanda's favorite Sweetie Pie...

8 medium tart apples
1/2 Cup sugar
1/4 Cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

¼ teaspoon salt
Peel, core and slice apples thin. In a bowl, stir sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together and toss together with apples stirring to coat. Place in pie crust and top with another crust. Cut vents in top crust and bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.

Thanks for visiting!
