Directions See How It's Made
- Pie dough:.
- In a mixing bowl for a mixer, cream the butter and sugar until mixed well. Fold in egg.
- Combine the flour and salt and fold into the butter mixture.
- Add the water 1 teaspoon at a time until the dough "pulls together".
- Wrap dough tightly in plastic wrap and allow to "rest" in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour (this can be made up to 2 days in advance).
- Portion dough into 10 equal parts and roll out thin, approximately 1/4 inch thick and place in individual metal ring mold or aluminum pie shells.
- Combine sliced apples,mustard, cinnamon, cornstarch and vanilla in a mixing bowl.
- Layer the apples into pie dough until apples are piled higher than the sides of each pie shell (the apples will drop as the pies bake).
- Top each pie with Cinnamon Crumble (recipe featured separately on Food.com) and bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
- Note: this can be made as one pie. It will probably need to bake for a total of 1 hour.
