INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 50-60 minutes
  • Servings: 8
  • Preparation Time: 20 minutes
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter, cold, cubed
  • 8 tablespoons cold water
  • 2 1/2 lb granny smith apple, cored, sliced, peeled

  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
DIRECTIONS
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, add the flour and salt. Mix with fork until combined.
  3. Add in cubed butter and break up into flour with a fork. Mixture will still have small lumps.
  4. Gradually add the cold water and continue to mix until the dough starts to come together. You may not need all of the water, but if the dough is too dry then add more.
  5. Work the dough together and turn out onto a surface. Work into a ball and cover with cling wrap. Refrigerate.
  6. Peel the apples, then core and slice.
  7. In a bowl, add the sliced apples, sugar, flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and juice from the lemon. Mix until combined and all apples are coated. Refrigerate.
  8. On a floured surface, cut the pie dough in half and roll out both halves until round and about 1/8-inch thick
  9. Roll the dough around the rolling pin and unroll onto a pie dish making sure the dough reaches all edges.
  10. Pour in apple filling mixture and pat down. Roll the other half of the dough on top.
  11. Trim the extra dough from the edges and pinch the edges to create a crimp. Make sure edges are sealed together.
  12. Brush the pie with the beaten egg and sprinkle with the sugar. Cut four slits in the top of the pie to create a vent.
  13. Bake pie for 50-60 minutes or until the crust is golden brown
  14. Allow to cool before slicing.
