Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup shortening

  2. Peel, core and slice apples.
  3. In a large bowl, combine apple slices, sugar and cinnamon. Cover and set aside.
  4. In a separate large bowl, cut shortening into flour using a pastry blender. Add chilled water, 1 tablespoon at a time and mix until dough forms into a ball.  If it does not, use hands to form a ball.

  9. Using a sharp knife, make four 1” cuts around the top of the pie crust for air to escape while baking.
  10. Place pie in oven on a jellyroll pan to catch juice from pie while baking.
  11. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes until crust is golden brown.
