Grated Apple Pie

Hazel's Hot Dish Recipe of the Week

There was an apple tree by the chicken house behind mama’s house. She’d bolt out, pick up a few apples, bolt back inside and bake this pie. Mama tried to make use of the apples before the deer consumed them.

1 pie shell (later years she bought it)
2 cups grated apples
1 cup sugar
1 beaten egg
1/2 stick butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat oven to 375°.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Stir until mixed well. Pour into pie shell. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes.
