    cwoolbright's Note:

    My mother got this recipe off Food Network and the crust is my grandmother's own flaky recipe. Absolutely delicious, never disappoints. I use this with the lattice top when I really want to impress. THE BEST APPLE PIE EVER. Ingredients from apples -> salt is for filling, from flour -> vinegar for pie crust.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6-8

    Yield:

    pie

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      For crust: cut the 3c flour, shortening, and 1/2 tsp salt together until it resembles small peas.
    2. 2
      Combine the egg, vinegar, and water and gradually add to flour mixture, stirring until moistened and soft dough forms. Divide into 2 balls and refrigerate. Can be frozen ahead of time. Dough works best when it is cold.
    3. 3
      Filling: In a large mixing bowl toss the apples with lemon juice.
    4. 4
      Combine the sugar, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
    5. 5
      Add the apples and toss until completely coated.
    6. 6
      Put the filling in a pastry-lined pie pan (from one of the dough balls above), distributing small cubes of the butter over the top.
    7. 7
      Roll out your other dough ball (use plenty of flour) and use a knife to cut into strips. Place these on top in a lattice-style fashion.
    8. 8
      To make the egg wash, whisk the egg and 1/4 tsp salt and brush over pie.
    9. 9
      Cover with foil and bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes, remove foil and bake for another 15-20 minutes until crust is flaky and apples tender.
