Easy Apple Pie Recipe
You Will Need:
For the crust:
2 cups of all purpose flour
2/3 cup and 2 tablespoons of shortening
1 teaspoon of salt
4 to 6 tablespoonfuls of cold water
For the Filling:
1/3 cup of sugar
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
¼ cup of all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
8 cups of tart apples (peeled and thinly sliced)
1/8 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoons of margarine
Place the flour and salt in a medium sized bowl. Using your pastry blender, cut in your shortening. Continue doing this until the flour particles have the size of a pea. Sprinkle the flour with cold water. Do this 1 tablespoon at a time. Toss the water using fork and do this until the flour is completely moistened and the bowl is clean of any pastry.
Mold the pastry into a ball shape. Divide the ball into half then flatten it out. Wrap both flat rounds using plastic wrap. Refrigerate this for about 45 minutes. In the event that you refrigerate your dough beyond the recommended time, you must allow the dough to soften first before rolling it.
Heat your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
Use a floured rolling pin to roll the pastry then divide it into 4 pieces. Put the pie crust in the pie plate.
Place flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl and mix well. Stir in apples and continue mixing until all ingredients are properly combined Spoon the filling into the pastry. Cut the butter into thin slices and sprinkle all over the filling.
Trim any overhanging edges.
Flatten the other pastry and fold this into four parts. You can either cut the pie dough into 2 in. thick strips and create a lattice pattern, or simply place the other crust on top. If you don’t create a lattice pattern, create some slits in the top layer of pie dough to allow the steam to escape. Place the dough top of the filling and press on the rim in order to seal. Cover edges with foil in order to avoid too much browning.
Bake the pie for 30-45 minutes. Remove the foil during the last 15 minutes of the baking period. Allow to cool down a bit before serving.
