Pie Recipes - Apple & Pumpkin

Just in time for the holiday season. I actually made this apple pie and it was delicious and I'm not a pie person so that says a lot. I learned how to make these pies and it is actually not that hard or time consuming. Here's the recipe if you want to try for yourself.
Pie Crust
2 cups flour
1 cup Crisco
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup cold water

It makes enough for the lining and top coat.

Apple Pie
6-8 Macintosh apples peeled and sliced
1 cup sugar
3 Tbls flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 Tbls butter cut into pieces

Apple Pie Directions
Combine sugar, apples, flour and spices (Be generous with the spices). Toss to coat fruit. Using your hands might be easier. Pour into a pastry lined pie dish. Dot with butter. Top with crust. Seal and flute edges. Wet top with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Don't forget to make your vents so you don't get a soggy pie. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

Pumpkin Pie
(same recipe on Libby pumpkin can)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 cloves
2 large eggs
1 15oz can pumpkin
1 12 fl oz can evaporated milk

Pumpkin Pie Directions
Combine ingredients and pour into pastry lined pie dish. Be generous on the spices. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes and then 350 for 45 minutes.
