DIRECTIONS

  • FOR CRUST:
  • In a medium to large sized bowl, mix together flour and salt.
  • Cut in butter with a pastry blender, until you have oatmeal-sized pieces of butter.
  • Slowly add water, little amounts at a time (you do not want to add too much) and toss with fork until dough starts to come together.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough. (This recipe makes the top and bottom crust, divide dough in half before rolling.).
  • Put one crust in the pie pan, set the other aside.
  • FOR FILLING:
  • Preheat oven 450°F, after 5 minutes of preheating, pre-bake the bottom pie shell 1-2 minutes.
  • Cut apples and sprinkle with lemon juice (optional), set aside in a medium/large sized bowl.
  • In another bowl, mix sugars, spices and 2 tbsp flour. Reserve 2-3 tbsp of mixture in a separate bowl.
  • Toss apples in mixture, and arrange in pie pan (dome shape works well). Sprinkle 1 tsp flour, then with reserved mixture.
  • Dot with butter, and cover with second crust. Seal/flute edges and slit steam vents.
  • Bake for 10 minutes at 450°F, then rotate pie and bake 30-35 minutes at 350°F Enjoy!
