Apple pie









Total Time

Prep: 30 min. + chilling Bake: 1 hour

Ingredients

BASIC PIE CRUST:
2-1/2 cups flour (white all-purpose)
Dash of salt
1/2 cup butter, chilled
1/2 cup shortening
Ice water (fill one cup but use only enough to moisten dough)

FOR THE APPLE FILLING:

7 to 8 large apples, peeled (depending on the size of apple & size of the pie dish, have about 3  available)
3/4 cup sugar
4 tablespoons flour
Dash of salt
1 to 2 teaspoons cinnamon (depending on how much you like)
1 tablespoon butter (put a dollop on top before covering with top crust)
1 beaten egg (you won't use all of it, just enough to brush on the pie before baking)

Directions
In a deep bowl, work the butter and shortening into the flour and salt with your hands until you see marble-sized lumps form. Add ice water a little at a time. When the dough feels moistened enough, do a “squeeze test” and when it holds together you’re done. Do not overwork the dough! It takes very little time and you’ll be tempted to keep touching it, but don’t! Now divide the dough in two, form each half into a disk shape and roll flat and thin to fit your pie dish. Sprinkle flour under and on top of your dough, and keep rolling surface and pin free from gunk to keep the dough from sticking. Trim excess dough to about 1 inch from the dish edge with scissors.

Slice half of the apples directly into the pie, arranging to remove extra space between slices. Cover with half of your other ingredients (sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt), then slice the remaining apples and cover with the second half of ingredients. Add a liquid drop of butter on top, cover with top crust, seal and crimp edges, then brush with beaten egg (this gives the pie a nice golden brown shine. Use a knife to poke holes in the top (get creative here with a pattern), then bake at 425degree( 245°c)for 15 to 20 minutes. Turn oven down to 375degree(190°c) and bake for another 30 to 40 minutes until juice bubbles. Keep an eye on it as it bakes. If it gets too brown turn down the temperature. To be sure it’s done, poke with a knife to make sure apples have softened. Do not over bake or apples will turn out to running.
