Makes 8 servings

Prep time: 20 min
Chilling and cooling time: 2 hours 30 min
Cooking time: 50 min
Difficulty: Medium

Ingredients

Pastry:

2 cups

all-purpose flour

1 tsp

salt

⅔ cup

shortening, plus 2 tbsp

5 tbsp

cold water

Filling:

⅔ cup

sugar

¼ cup

all-purpose flour

½ tsp

ground cinnamon

½ tsp

ground nutmeg

⅛ tsp

salt

8

large baking apples, peeled and thinly sliced

Directions

Pastry:

  1. Mix flour and salt in medium bowl. Cut in shortening using a pastry blender or fork until mixture is the consistency of small peas. Sprinkle with cold water, one tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened.
  2. Gather pastry into a ball and divide in half. Shape each ball into a flattened round on a lightly floured surface. If desired, wrap flattened rounds of pasty in plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes to slightly firm up the dough.
  3. Roll pastry out on lightly floured surface, using a floured rolling pin, into 2 circles, 2 inches larger than upside-down pie plate. Fold bottom pastry into fourths and place in pie plate; or roll pastry loosely around rolling pin and transfer to pie plate. Unfold or unroll pastry and ease into plate, pressing firmly against bottom and sides and being careful not to stretch pastry.
  4. Preheat oven to 425ºF.

Filling:

  1. Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in large bowl. Stir in apples. Turn into pastry-lined pie plate. Cut butter into small pieces, sprinkle over apples. Cover with top pastry, seal and flute.
  2. For top crust cut 4 or 5 small slits into the dough for steam to escape while cooking. Cover pie edges with 2 to 3-inch strip of aluminum foil to prevent overbrowning. Remove foil for last 15 minutes of baking.
  3. Bake 40 to 50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and juices begin to bubble through slices in top crust. Cool on wire rack for at least 2 hours before serving.
