READY IN: 50mins
YIELD: 1 pie




  • Sift flour with salt into mixing bowl; add almonds.
  • Cut in shortening. Blend egg and water; sprinkle over flour mixture while stirring with fork until dough is just moist enough to hold together.
  • Divide in half; form into balls. Flatten to about 1/2-in. thickness; smooth edges. Roll out one portion on floured surface to a circle 1-1/2 larger than inverted 9-inch pie pan. Fit loosely into pan.
  • Cinna-Apple Filling: Combine sugar, pineapple juice and cinnamon candies. Bring to a boil, for 5 minutes.
  • Prepare apples; coat with flour. Add sugar syrup; cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Pour into pastry-lined pan.
  • Roll out remaining dough. Cut into strips 3/4 inches wide and crisscross over filling to form lattice over top.
  • Trim and seal ends. Fold bottom crust over to cover; flute.
  • Brush strips with reserved egg white, slightly beaten. Sprinkle with mixture of sugar and cinnamon.
  • Bake in hot oven 425 degrees 10 minutes, then at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes until crust is golden brown.
