DIRECTIONS

  • Make filling: put apple slices in a big bowl; top will all the remaining ingredients, except lemon juice; mix well.
  • Sprinkle the lemon juice over the apples to prevent browning.
  • Set mixture aside to blend while the crust is being prepared.
  • Make the crust: in a big bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Cut in the butter and shortening.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the egg, vinegar, and water.
  • Add to the flour mixture and blend with your hands until moist; add more water if needed.
  • Preheat oven to 425°; divide dough into 2 sections.
  • On a floured board, roll out each section into 11-inch rounds; fit 1 round into a 9-inch pie pan, and spread the piñon nuts evenly in the bottom.
  • Mound the filling on top; place the second pastry round on top.
  • Flute the edges and cut vent holes in the top crust.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then decrease temperature to 400° and continue baking for 1 hour or until the juices bubble around the outer edge (cover with foil, if crust starts to get too brown).
