Apple Pie

Apple pie is a fruit pie or tart made with apples and sometimes may include other fruits, such as raisins, figs and pears. Apple pie originated from Medieval England in 1381 from a recipe called "For to Make Tartys in Applis". The pies can be eaten hot or cold and nowadays is usually served with cream or ice cream. The pies were introduced to the Netherlands and Sweden, where their popularity spread throughout Europe. Later on during the colonization of America, apples had to be imported to the states from Europe in large amounts to make these pies, because apples were not native to America.

Apple pie appears to have originated (or at least it's mentioned) in Europe as far back as 1381. It appears in a cookbook put together in 1390, and owned by master chefs of King Richard II, which was then presented to the Queen by Edward Lord Stafford; though the pies then were much different as the crust was not made to eat (basically inedible), and they did not use sugar as it was extremely costly.

A recipe for apple pie?

My favourite (and my teenagers) is this:
6 cups of apples (the type is your choice as it will depend on what you like)
3/4 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons flour
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Mix that together in a bowl, add it to your pie dish that already has the bottom pastry, put on your top pastry, pinch the edges, add some small slits in the top to release steam, brush on some egg white (makes a wonderful colour on the top), and then I like to sprinkle on some coarse white sugar before putting it in the oven

425F for 40 to 45 mins

This recipe is for a 9 inch pie size.

What are some good recipes for faux apple pie without apples in the ingredients?

Apparently mock apple pies have been made since the 1850s, when pioneers missed the apple pie Mom used to make when they lived back east. They substituted one made of soda crackers and spices. (Soda crackers weren't cheap, but apples cost the equivilant of $100 per pound in today's money, in Los Angeles in the 1850s.)One of the most popular and famous involves Ritz crackers instead of the apples. If you really want it, google "Ritz Mock Apple Pie" My question is, Why? Why not use apples, which are tastier and certainly healthier than an all-starch soda cracker pie?
