Apple Pie Recipe

Ingredients and Equipment

Apples - about 20 medium fresh apples of sweet-tart varieties: Fuji, McIntosh, Stayman Winesap, Jonagold, Rome, Cameo, Jonathan.
One 10-inch inch deep pie plate

Ingredients:
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground dry ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/2 cup flour (all purpose)
5 Tablespoons corn starch 
1 cup granulated sugar OR
1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup Stevia

Preheat oven to 425F 
Wash, peel and thinly slice apples. 
Mix all ingredients in a bowl and add apple slices. Stir to mix well. 
Make the pie crust (see below)
Put half the pie crust in pan 
Fill with apples
Put the other half of the pie crust on top, pinch two crusts together, sprinkle with sugar 
Place air holes (your initials, a heart shape or other design) in top pie crust 
Place in the preheated oven (with a cookie sheet underneath to catch any syrupy overflow) for 40-45 min.
Crust should be brown, but not burned (to avoid burning, place foil loosely over pie as it cooks. 
When pie is bubbling hot, it is done. 
Let cool. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream!


Pie Crust Yield: 2 deep dish 10" pie shells.

Ingredients:
3 cups flour (all purpose) 
4 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
4 Tablespoons + 4 teaspoons (2 ounces by weight) COLD vegetable shortening 
2/3 cup COLD butter
1/2 cup cold water

Directions:
Step 1 - Mix the flour, sugar and shortening for about 15 seconds in a food processor. Little pea sized granules make a flaky crust.

Step 2 - Mix and add water as needed Sprinkle in the water, just enough water to make it hold together. A few seconds in a food processor works well. Just mix it enough to make it into pieces that hold together about the size of a pea.

If you have time, chill the dough (wrapped in plastic wrap or a Ziploc bag) for a half hour or more.

Step 3 - Roll out the dough Place waxed paper over dough and roll it out to an even thickness – about 1/8-inch thick--and just an inch or two wider than your pie pan.

Step 4 - Put in the pie pan and shape Place the dough into the pie pan. If it breaks, just patch it together.
