This is from an old Amy Vanderbilt cookbook I found at a church sale. My tweak is to use Earl Grey tea. My friends rave about my apple pie, but all I do is follow the recipe. Serve with sharp Cheddar cheese. Hope you enjoy!

  • Combine sugar, tea, flour, lemon juice, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well.

  • Spread a layer of apples over the pie crust. Sprinkle some of the sugar mixture on top. Repeat layers until the pie plate is full.

  • Dot butter over the apples. Cover with second pie crust. Press edges together to seal; trim any excess. Poke holes in the top with a fork so steam can escape.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crust is golden brown, 40 to 50 minutes. Cool completely before slicing.

Cook's Note:

Avoid getting lemon seeds in the sugar mixture by squeezing lemon through your slightly open fingers.
