How to Make Apple Pie To Die For

Step-by-Step

  • 1For 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.
  • 2Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line 9-inch pie pan with 1 pie crust from above recipe.
  • 3Combine 1 Tablespoon of sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoon of flour in bottom of crust.

  • 5cook over medium heat until boiling and thickened, stirring constantly. be careful not to burn.
  • 6pour over apples and butter. Stir to coat them well, and pour into pie crust.
  • 7place 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.)
  • 8wrap aluminum foil loosely around the edges to keep the crust from burning as it cooks
  • 9bake about 40 minutes, removing the foil for the last 5 minutes, until the crust is well browned
