How to Make De-Lish-Ous Apple Pie


  1. 8 big apples, macintosh are best. Peel core and slice them into a bowl. In a separate bowl put 1-1/2 cups sugar, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1 teaspoon nutmeg, 3 tablespoons flour. Mix up the dry ingredients and then add ½ stick melted butter to the sugar and spices. Mix it up well so all the dry stuff has a tiny bit of butter mixed in. Now mix the sugar spices and butter in with your apples. Give them a good stir so all the apples have some sugar and spices on them.
  2. 3-1/2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1-1/2 cups Crisco. Mix the salt and flour together in a big bowl. Dump the Crisco in and using 2 butter knives cut the Crisco into tiny (about the size of a pea) pieces. You have seen me do this a million times so you know how its done. Next add in a glass of ice cold water a little bit at a time, as you do keep stirring the Crisco and flour until it all turns into a big ball. Remember, just add a little water at a time. Next separate the ball of crust into two equal size balls, sprinkle a little flour on the outside of them and slap them into a tighter ball to get out the air.
  3. Now sprinkle some flour on the counter or a big cutting board and place 1 of the balls of crust into the center. Roll it out slowly until you have just enough so this it will hang over the edges of the pie plate. Put it in the plate and gently press it into the corners with your knuckle. When you move from the counter to the pie plate, be careful not to break it. Now put in your apples and spices. Next roll out the second piece of crust same as the first and place it over the top. Push the edges down so the top crust seals with the bottom one. Now take a knife and trim away any excess crust hanging over the edges. Using a fork and a glass of cold water, dip the fork in the cold water and press the tines into the edge where the 2 crusts seal, keep doing this till you get all around the edges.
  4. Lastly put 5 or 6 vent holes in the crust and a few dots of butter on the top. Place in 375 degree preheated oven for 55 minutes. Make sure you put some tin foil or a baking sheet under the pie just in case it leaks out the edges a little.
