Amish apple cream pie

This apple pie recipe comes from the wonderful Amish community near where I grew up.  You can vary it by changing up the spices, using a graham cracker crust, adding a crumb topping, or adding pears along with the apples if you wish.  It's also great just the way I've written it out below: plain.

Amish Apple Cream Pie

Make a single batch of regular pie crust

3 c finely cut apples
1 c brown or white sugar (brown preferred)
2/3 c cream or top milk
1/4 t salt
1 rounded T flour

Line the pie pan with the crust.  Mix the apples through flour together and place into shell.  Sprinkle the top with cinnamon.  Bake at 450 for 15 minutes; reduce oven to 325 and bake for another 30 minutes.  At about the half way point, push the top apples down into the sauce to soften them too.

It's just a bit different! Not that I ever get tired of regular plain old apple pie... ;-)
