Paper Bag Apple Pie

Paper Bag Apple Pie - From my "new" Amish cookbook

6 cups coursely sliced or chopped apples
1/2 c sugar
2 Tbls flour
......1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 Tbls lemon juice
Measure apples into a bowl and mix them with the sugar, flour, nutmeg and lemon juice. Turn them into an unbaked pie shell and pat them down evenly.

1/2 c butter
1/2 c flour
1/2 c brown or white sugar
Measure out the butter, flour and sugar, cutting in the buter with a pastry blender until crumbs are the size of peas. Sprinkly evenly over the apples and pat it down around the edges. Slide the pie into a brown paper bag and fold the end under the pie. Put onto a cookie sheet for easy handling. Bake at 425* for 50 minutes

The benefit of this method is a pie with no scorched rim, no under-baked apples, no boiling over in your clean oven and no grief in general
