Apple Pie

Apple Pie is reserved for special times of the year. One is for Thanksgiving of course 😉 and the other times if for The Hubs. It’s his favorite dessert. So I made some apple pie for him for Father’s Day. He loved it and has been enjoying it for breakfast too!! Try it out and see what you think!

Ingredients
Filling
6 cups sliced Apples
{8 cups if using frozen Apples}
1 cup Sugar
2 tbsp Flour
1 tsp Cinnamon
a few dashes of Nutmeg
Crust
2 cups sifted Flour
2/3 cup Crisco
1 tsp Salt
3/4 cup way cold water

Directions
Preheat oven to 375*
Slice and dice apples or defrost them.
Combine all the filling ingredients with the apples and set aside.
Combine the flour and salt from the crust ingredients.
Cut in the crisco with a pastry cutter or fork until it resembles corn meal.
Add the water and mix together with hands until dough forms.
Split the dough not quite in half, and roll out the larger ‘half’ first to about 1/4 inch thick.
Gently place the rolled out dough in your pie dish, trim the edges, and fork the bottom and the sides.
Roll out the smaller ‘half’ of the pie crust about a 1/4 inch thick and set aside.
Drain the apples of some of the juice that has formed and pour the apples into the pie dish.
Gently place the top piece of crust over the apples and trim.
Seal the edges all the way around the pie.
Cut little slits in the top of the crust to vent during baking.
Cover the edges with a pie crust cover or foil and bake for 25 min.
Remove pie crust cover or foil and bake again for 25 min.
Remove and let settle for 5-10 min.
Enjoy!
