Granny Smith Apple Pie

An all American pie straight from heaven.
In this rcipe you don't lay the apple slices
down flat in the pie, you stand them up on end.
Right close to each other around the entire pie.
I use some maple syrup for an extra special taste.

2- 9" pie crusts
10 or 12 Granny Smith apples
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons maple syrup
sprinkle of sugar for top

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl place flour,
sugar, cinnamon and salt mix well.
Peel apple and cut into 1/4" slices.
You should get four slices per apple
with two 1/2" rectangle end pieces.
As you slice the apple place in bowl
with flour mixture and turn to coat them.
Repeat until you have enough apple slices
to place side by side around edge of pie.
Place bottom crust in pie plate and arrange
apple slices around pie with small pieces
placed in the center of the pie standing up.
Dot apple slices with butter and drizzle
some maple syrup around the center of pie.
Place top crust on and crimp edges to bake.
Sprinkle pie with sugar and create vent holes.
Bake for about 1 hour or until brown and bubbly.
