- Ready In:
- 1hr 30mins
- 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.
Questions & Replies
For several years now I have made a pie from the good parts of bad apples. I don’t spray so there’s lots of them. They are partly ripe when I get them. It’s tedious ... but these pies are extra ordinary. My family has come to love them. I call them Bad Apple Pies. I modified a very old recipe like this one. Has anyone tried using these kinds of apples??

Me and my boyfriend have been together for 11 years now. We live on 40 acres and have 6 dogs and 4 Tennessee Walkers. We both work a lot of hours so there is never enough time in a day to get everything done. I absolutely love the outdoors. I also enjoy lifting weights, reading and playing with all of my beautiful animals. I absolutely love, love and love to cook. I like to cook a variety of things and also like love to bake. I like to just get in the kitchen and experiment with different things. If something does not turn out for me such as pie crust or gravy I will keep trying until I can make it work. Only problem is, when I finally make it work it may not work again the time after that. It is fun though and I do consider myself a pretty good cook for the most part. I also love slow cooker recipes. Those are my most favorite in the winter months.
