Divide pastry for a 2 crust pie in half. Line pan with 1 half and save 2nd half for top. Refrigerate both.
Slice 4 cups apples mix with 1 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp cinnamon grated rind of 1/2 lemon, 1 tbs lemon juice 3 T. flour toss to coat all apples.
add 1/2 cup craisins toss. Pile into crust dot with butter. Cover with top crust slashed in several places. Seal edges and Crimp. Bake in a preheated 450 oven for 10 minutes. then reduce heat to 350 bake for 30 min or till golden brown. put your pie on a cookie sheet before baking to catch any juice that comes out. I like to brush my pie with egg wash then sprinkle sugar on before baking I added some chopped nuts to the top of this pie also.
I hope you enjoy this family recipe
