Ingredients

  • Crust Ingredients:
  • (this recipe makes 2 crusts)
  • 3 cups AP flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 tbls white sugar
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp distilled white vinegar
  • 5 tbls water
  • Pie Filling Ingredients:
  • 7 medium apples (peeled, cored and sliced very thin)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Topping:
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup AP flour
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup chilled butter, cut into pieces

Directions

  • To prepare crust: in a large mixing bowl, combine flour, salt and sugar. Mix well, and then cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse meal.
  • In a small bowl, combine egg, vinegar, and water. Whisk together then add gradually to flour mixture, stirring with a fork. Mix until dough forms a ball (or until well mixed, you may have to form the ball yourself). Allow dough to rest in refrigerator for 10 minutes before rolling out.
  • Place oven rack in lowest position and preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • On a floured surface, roll chilled dough into a 12" circle.
  • 5) Fit dough into a 9" pie pan and trim excess dough leaving 1" overhang and make a decorative edge.
  • To prepare filling: mix together all filling ingredients and spoon into pie crust.
  • To prepare topping: in a small bowl mix together brown sugar, flour and nutmeg.
  • Using a pastry blender cut butter into brown sugar mixture until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs and sprinkle over top of pie filling.
  • Bake pie until topping is lightly browned and filling is bubbly, approximately 35 minutes. If the pie is getting to brown cover loosely with aluminum foil.

Notes

I just realized that the crust recipe makes 2 crusts and the pie recipe is for 1 - 1 crust pie.
