For this trusty recipe, pick tart, firm apples that will hold up to the baking. Slice them thinly and add flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and a dash of salt. Pile the apples into a prepared crust, dot with butter, and top with another round of pastry. Bake until the apples are tender and the crust is golden.

Sliced apples, raisins and walnuts are sugared, dusted with cinnamon and nutmeg, and piled into a pastry shell. A sweet crumbly topping is sprinkled over the top. The whole pie is then loosely covered with aluminum foil, and baked until golden and brown.
