This is the BEST apple pie evah! Note: Pioneer Woman (aka Ree Drummond, my culinary hero) adds a homemade caramel sauce to drizzle over the top - sounds awesome, but the pie has been so delicious just by itself I've never tried it. I have, however, tried it ala mode w/vanilla bean ice cream & it was over the top deeeeelish!
For pie crust, combine flour & salt in a large bowl. Add in butter & shortening. Using pastry cutter work butter & shortening into flour until it looks like tiny pebbles.
Lightly beat egg w/fork & add to mixture. Next add in water & vinegar. Stir mixture together til just combined & remove 1/2 the dough from bowl. Yields dough for 2 crusts.
Preheat oven to 375. In large bowl, stir together apples, sugars, flour, salt & lemon juice.
With a rolling pin begin rolling out pie crusts into large circles. Roll the dough from the center outward. With a spatula lift the dough & carefully place the circles onto large baking sheets.
Place 1/2 the apple mixture on one crust & 1/2 on the other crust. Fold over edges of crust so it covers 2-3 inches of the apple mixture. Dot the tops of pies w/chunks of butter.
Bake til filling is golden & bubbly, about 30-40 minutes. Cover edges with foil if browning too quickly.
Allow to cool slightly, then slice into wedges with a pizza cutter.
