Traditional Apple Pie

Pastry for a two-crust 9 inch pie

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Stir together sugar, tapioca, cinnamon and salt, mix with sliced apples, and pour mixture into a pastry lined pie pan. Dot the apple mixture with butter, cover it with the top crust and cut in slits. Seal and flute the pastry cover the edge with a 2-3 inch strip of foil to prevent excessive browning.
