Use Paula Red or Ida Red apples - the best apple pie I've ever tasted!
Mix 1/2 cup sugar, 2 Tbsp flour, and the cinnamon together and toss with apples. Heap into the pie shell. Combine butter, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/2 cup flour to make a thin paste. Spread paste over apples, coating evenly. Place pie in a brown paper bag and close securely with paper clips or staples.
Place pie in center of the oven rack, taking care that the paper bag does not come in contact with any interior oven surface. Bake in pre-heated 400 degree oven for 1 hour. when pie is done, cut away the bag.
