Apple Pie in a Paper Bag

Submitted by Emily Golden

*I know it sounds crazy to put a paper bag in the oven, but I promise it’s okay! The trick is to make sure the bag isn’t touching the coils on the top of the oven.


1 1/2 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 c. salad oil
2 Tbsp. cold milk

Combine all ingredients. Mix until well blended. Press into bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan. (Do not roll it out!)


4 c. pared, cored, diced apples (for BEST results, use a tart baking apple)
1/3 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1 rounded tsp. cinnamon
1 rounded tsp. ground nutmeg

Combine dry ingredients and then toss lightly with diced apples. Pour into unbaked pie shell.


1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. softened butter
1/2 c. sugar

Combine ingredients and mix together until crumbly. Sprinkle over top of pie. Place the pie in a brown paper bag (standard paper grocery bag), and staple it closed.

Bake at 350˚ for 1 1/2 hours. DON'T PEEK!!
