Green Apple Pie

Recipe by Gingerbear
READY IN: 1hr 30mins
YIELD: 1 pie




  • For pastry, mix flour and salt; cut in shortening.
  • Add water 1 tbsp at a time, using only enough to make a workable paste (too little will make it crumbly). This pastry, being exceedingly rich, must be handled deftly.
  • Roll out pastry and line pan.
  • Make 2 (9 inch) shells.
  • Thorough chilling before rolling makes pastry easier to handle.
  • For filling, line pie pan with one pastry shell and fill with sliced apples.
  • Mix and sift dry ingredients over the apples.
  • Add water and lemon juice; dot with butter, then top with secondary pie shell.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until pie filling is done and pie is golden brown.
  • If pie crust starts getting too dark before it is done.
  • Cover with aluminum foil.
  • ENJOY!
