Why I Love This Recipe

How can resist a perfect apple pie? This was created by a glamour reader and when she made it for her boyfriend he proposed. I'm not to sure about that, but it doesn't hurt to give it a try! :)

Ingredients You'll Need

Hook-Him Apple Pie: Filling

* 8 cups cored, peeled, sliced apples
* 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
* 1/2 cup granulated sugar
* 3 tablespoons cornstarch
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
* 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
* 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Hook-Him Apple Pie: Cream Pie Crust

* 2 2/3 cups flour
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup butter-flavored shortening
* 8-10 tablespoons refrigerated half-and-half
* 1 egg beaten with 2 tablespoons of water


Hook-Him Apple Pie: Filling

Preheat oven to 400 F. Butter a three–quart baking dish. Place apples in large bowl. Combine sugars, cornstarch, salt and spices in a small bowl and pour over apples, tossing to coat. Combine melted butter and lemon juice, add to apple mixture and spoon into baking dish. Cover with aluminum foil and cut large vents in foil. Bake 35 minutes, remove foil and stir apples. Cool to room temperature.

Hook-Him Apple Pie: Cream Pie Crust

Combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles small peas. Add half and half a spoonful at a time, tossing with fork until the dough clings. Divide dough in half and roll into two 12-inch circles. Ease one circle into a deep-dish pie plate and add cooked apple mixture. Place second crust over filling, trim the edges, turn under and crimp. Cut vents in top crust. Brush egg and water glaze over center of pie. Cover edges with aluminum foil and dust lightly with sugar. Bake 20 minutes. Remove foil and bake until crust is golden, 20-30 minutes more. Let cool before slicing.
