My family swears that this pie is the secret to true happiness. While I don't know about that, with it's flaky crust it does taste heavenly

How to Make Apple Pie To Die For

Step-by-Step

  1. For your crust measure 2 cups of flour into a bowl and mix salt in with a fork. Cut Shortening in coarsely. Sprinkle water in 1 Tablespoon at a time, and mix with a fork until all the flour is dampened. Gather into a ball and roll out on a floured surface to make 2 crust for a 9-inch pie.
  2. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line 9-inch pie pan with 1 pie crust from above recipe.
  3. Combine 1 Tablespoon of sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoon of flour in bottom of crust.
  4. In a sauce pan combine 1 cup of sugar, 3 Tablespoons of flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and water.
  5. cook over medium heat until boiling and thickened, stirring constantly. be careful not to burn.
  6. pour over apples and butter. Stir to coat them well, and pour into pie crust.
  7. place second crust over the apples, and pinch together along the edges to form a fluted crust. Cut vents into the top crust (I cut little designs in mine to make it pretty.)
  8. wrap aluminum foil loosely around the edges to keep the crust from burning as it cooks
  9. bake about 40 minutes, removing the foil for the last 5 minutes, until the crust is well browned
