Ingredients 

Pie Crust:  (TIPS: You can BUY a refrigerated ready made pie crust, the rolled one, not the frozen one)

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup butter or shortening
  • 3 tablespoon coldwater

Apple Filling:

  • 5 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose-flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoon butter, softened

Method:

To make the Crust:

  • Combine the flour, salt and shortening in mixing bowl.
  • Add cold water by the spoonful and blend until the bowl starts to clean itself as you work the dough.
  • Divide dough in half and shape each into a ball. Flatten each into a 4-inch circle.
  • Dust rolling pin and work surface lightly with flour. Roll dough to a uniform thickness. Roll to a circle about 1-inch larger than upside down 8-inch pie plate. Carefully place one dough circle into pie plate and gently press into form of plate. Trim excess dough around the edge with the back of a knife.
