--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   1 1/2  Cups          Raw Sugar,Granulated
     1/3  Cup           Flour,All-Purpose
     1/4  Teaspoon      Nutmeg,Ground
     1/4  Teaspoon      Allspice,Ground
   1      Teaspoon      Cinnamon,Ground
          Dash          Salt
   8                    Apples,Granny Smith (tart) -- Pared & quartered
   3      Tablespoons   Butter
  10      Inch          Pastry for two-crust pie -- (see recipe)
                        Milk

1)  Mix sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt together in a bowl large enough to hold the apples.  Stir in the sliced apples and mix well.

2)  Heat oven to 220° C (425° F).

3)  Prepare pastry.

4)  Line pie plate with 1/2 of the pastry.  Use a fork to press holes over the bottom of the crust.

5)  Turn apple mixture into pastry-lined plate and dot with the butter.

6)  Cover with other 1/2 of the pastry and seal.  Brush pastry with milk and use a fork to make holes in the pastry to allow steam to escape during cooking.

7)  Bake until juice begins to bubble through holes in the crust (40 to 50 minutes).  This is really important!  If the juice doesn't bubble through, the apples aren't cooked enough and the pie doesn't taste right!
