Apple Raisin Pies

What could be better than two apple pies made with local, unsprayed apples? Not much.

The recipe is simple:

2 crust pie crusts
6-7 cups sliced apples
1 cup raisins
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup flour
Pinch salt
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons butter
cream and sugar for brushing

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line pie plate and fill with apples and raisins. Mix the sugar, cinnamon, flour and salt together. Stir in the water. Spread mixture over the fruit. Dot with butter, cover with top crust and brush with heavy cream. Sprinkle with sugar. Vent, and bake about 1 hour or until done. Be sure to use a pan beneath to catch the drips as this is a very moist pie.
