Sometimes I add walnuts or pecans to the apple mixture...even cranberries...make it your own...

Ingredients

1 1/4 c
flour
1/8 tsp
salt
1 1/2 Tbsp
sugar
6 Tbsp
cold butter
1/8 c
cold shortening
ice
water

CRUST

2 - 3
sliced tart apples - i use granny smith
1
heaping tablespoon flour
1/3 c
packed brown sugar
1/3 c
sugar
juice
of half a lemon
1 tsp
honey
1/8 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
butter,cut into fourths
1
eggs
1 Tbsp
water
sugar
in the raw - optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Make your crust..can either make your own, or I posted mine. If using mine - this is how I make.

In food processor; pulse dry ingredients a couple times. Add shortening and butter, Pulse 8 - 10 times, or until butter is in tiny pieces.

Add water just until it comes together and forms a ball.
2
Place dough in plastic wrap and chill...( I only chilled long enough to make filling.)
3
Preheat oven to 375 degree F.


Apple filling:

In a medium bowl; add first 7 ingredients, mix well and let set for at least 10 minutes to make some juices.
4
Roll the dough from the center outward, on a lightly floured counter. You don't want the edges perfect, its rustic looking after all. So don't worry about perfection.
5
Place the crust on a baking sheet.
6
Spoon the apple mixture on the center of the crust, spreading out evenly; making sure you leave at least 3 inches of crust to fold over the filling.
7
Now, fold the edges of crust over the filling, at least 3 inches of dough.
8
Dot apples with the butter.

In a small bowl, mix egg with water and brush the dough and sprinkle with sugar...this is optional.
9
Bake for 35 - 40 minutes or until golden and bubbly.


Let cool and slice in wedges.

Great with ice cream.
