Recipe ~ McGinties (A Recipe of the Pioneers)

1 lb. of dried apples
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
1 1/2 Tbs cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
! 1/2 recipe of plain pastry

Wash apples and cover with water allowing to soak overnight.  Cook in same water used for soaking until very tender, adding more water if necessary.  Press through a collander, add sugar, salt and cinnamon.  Cook til thick, stirring constantly near the last to prevent burning.  Line the bottom and half way up the sides of a dripping pan with pastry. Dot generously with butter, cover with pastry which has been pierced to allow steam to escape, press the edges together and bake in a hot oven (450 degrees F) for 10 minutes; then reduce the temperature to 350 degrees F. and bake till crust is done ~~ about 20 to 25 minutes.  Cut in squares and serve either hot or cold.
