How to Make Easiest and Best Butter Cookie Apple Pie with Raisins and Cinnamon


  1. In large bowl of mixer, beat together butter, flour and sugar until mixture
    resembles coarse meal. Add water, a little at a time, and only enough to form a
    soft dough. As soon as the dough clumps together it is ready. Knead it once or
    twice until it is smooth, wrap with wax paper and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
    Cut dough in half and roll one half out to measure a 12 inch circle. Place in
    greased deep dish 9 inch pie plate. Toss together filling ingredients and place
    into prepared pie crust. Roll out the second half of dough to measure 11 inches
    and place over the apples. Pinch edges together to seal, cut a few slits on top,
    brush top with a little milk and sprinkle with 1 t. sugar. Place pie on cookie
    sheet and bake at 375 for about 45 minutes or until top is browned. Delicious
    served fresh and warm. Serves 8
