Recipe Ingredients for Fred's homemade apple pie


CRUST INGREDIENTS:
2 cups flour
1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup shortening
1/2 tsp vinegar
1 egg
1/4 cup cold water

FILLING INGREDIENTS:
5 apples
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup light brown sugar (packed)
1 dash salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 tbsp tapioca
5 tbsp butter
2 tbsp flour

Recipe Directions for Fred's homemade apple pie

  1. Combine first three crust ingredients in mixing bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender until coarse. In a separate bowl, combine cold water, vinegar, and egg and whip lightly, then add to flour mixture, stirring lightly with fork until it becomes a sticky dough. Refrigerate finished dough in a small covered container or plastic wrap for 2 hours or overnight.

  2. For filling, combine all dry ingredients except butter and apples in a bowl, then peel and slice apples (I use an apple slicer/corer machine). Now stir the apples thoroughly into the dry ingredients to coat all the apple slices. Let mixture set for 15 to 30 minutes to develop a ??juice? while you roll the crust below.

  3. Take about 2/3 of refrigerated dough and roll to about 13? in diameter. Adjust to fit the deep dish and trim edges. Combine remaining dough and roll to about 11? in diameter. Add filling to dish and place 8 slices of butter on top of the filling. Add upper crust, roll the edges and cut a few ??steam? slits in a design of your choice. You can also add some colored sugar sprinkles to the top crust that adds some color to the pie. Create your own art piece. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes and then reduce to 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes. I use an aluminum ring over the crust edge to avoid burnt edges. Cool on a wire rack for around 2 hours before eating.
