  • Crust: Combine flour and salt. Cut in crisco until pea size chunks are formed. Sprinkle with water, 1T at a time. Toss lightly with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide into 2 equal parts. Press between hands to form two 5 to 6" pancakes. Flour lightly on both sides. Roll crust out between sheets of waxed paper. Fit to pan.


This is our favorite apple pie. It freezes well unbaked, covered tightly in 2 layers of foil. On Thanksgiving and Christmas, I put the pie in oven(frozen) when we sit down to eat, and bake it for about 60 mins.
