Cover a bowlful of well-washed dried apples with cold water and allow
to soak over night. The following morning cook until tender and mash
through a colander. If quite thick a small quantity of water should be
added. Season with sugar to taste. Some apples require more sugar than
others. Add cinnamon, if liked. Aunt Sarah never used any spices in
these pies. Bake with two crusts or place strips cross-wise over the
pie of thinly rolled dough, like lattice work. These are typical
"Bucks County" pies.
