6 small apples, cored/peeled/sliced
dash of lemon juice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon flour for thickening
Mix this together in a bowl and set aside...
When I make any sort of dessert I like to grease the pan well to assure that it'll come off the pan without sticking.
Now either make your own pie crust or buy some pre-made crusts, whatever you prefer.
The pie crust recipe I use is:
2 cups flour
2/3 cup butter flavored crisco
Mix well with pastry blender or cut with two knives. Sometimes I improvise and use a wire whisk and just mix it until it's all crumbly.
Then add about 8 Tablespoons of cold water and mix with your hands. It should be just a little sticky but not wet. If it is wet, just add a little flour. Don't overmix or your pie crust will be tough.
Now this was more than I needed so you could probably cut the recipe in half, but I had a better idea which I'll share later...:-)
Now roll two 8" circles about 1/8-1/4 inch thick and put in your well-greased skookie. It should hang over the edges about 2 inches all the way around. If it's not perfect, no worries, mine wasn't either :-)
Now put half of your filling in each skookie on the pie crust. Now just fold the crust up over the filling about 2 inches around and just fold and pinch it together...(refer to pic)
Put a tablespoon of butter in the center.
Place in oven at 425 for 30 minutes...
Take out and ENJOY!
With the remaining crust, I rolled it out into (2) 6-inch circles, placed them on the greased skookie pans and sprinkled them with cinnamon and sugar and put it in the oven at 425 for about 10 minutes or so until it was golden brown and all puffy... soooooo good!!! This is a spectacular treat for the kids!
