 Ingredients List

  • ----------------------------------FILLING----------------------------------
  • 1/3 c Sugar
  • 2 tb Flour
  • 1 c Milk
  • 3 Egg yolks
  • 1 tb Butter or margarine
  • 1/2 ts Vanilla extract
  • 2 lb Tart cooking apples
  • 1 tb Lemon juice
  • 2 tb Butter or margarine
  • 2 tb Sugar
  • Dash of nutmeg
  • 3/4 c Apricot preserves
  • 1 Egg yolk


Prepare crust and roll out 2/3rds of the pastry to form a 12 inch circle.
Use to line a 9 inch pie plate; refrigerate with rest of pastry. Make
filling: In small saucepan combine 1/3 cup sugar and the flour; mix well.
Stir in milk. Bring to boiling, stirring; reduce heat; simmer, stirring
until slightly thickened ~ 1 minute. In a small bowl, beat 3 egg yolks
slightly. Beat in a little of hot mixture; pour back into saucepan,
beating to mix well. Stir in 1 tablespoon butter and the vanilla. Turn
into bowl to cool. Core, pare, and slice apples; sprinkle with lemon juice.
In medium skillet, heat butter with sugar and nutmeg. Add apple slices;
saute, stirring occasionally, until partially cooked - about 5 minutes.
Remove from heat. Heat apricot preserves just until melted. Preheat oven
to 425F. Turn filling into pie shell, spreading evenly. Arrange apple
slices on top, mounding slightly in center. Spread with apricot preserves.
Roll out rest of pastry to form a 10-inch circle. With knife or pastry
wheel, cut into 12 strips 1/2" wide. Slightly moisten rim of pie shell with
cold water. Arrange 6 stips across filling; press ends to rim of pie
shell, trimming off ends if necessary. Arrange rest of strips at right
angle to first strips, to form a lattice. Bring overhang of pastry up over
ends of strips; crimp edge. Mix yolk with a tablespoon of water; use to
brush lattice strips, not edge. On lowest shelf of oven, bake 35-40
minutes, or until pastry is golden. Cool. Serve slightly warm.
