Well, with Autumn definitely here and the apple season at its peak, I thought that this would be the perfect time to share this wonderful recipe!
First, it's a good idea to prepare your filling.
Apple Pie Filling-
6 to 8 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
3/4 cup water
2 Tbsp. flour
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
Dash ground nutmeg
2 Tbsp. butter
Mix all ingredients except butter, cover, and set aside.
Now that your filling is ready and waiting, it is time to work on your crust.
2 cups sifted flour
2/3 cups shortening
5 to 7 Tbsp. cold water
Sift flour and salt together; cut in shortening with a pastry blender until pieces are the size of small peas. Sprinkle water 1 Tbsp. at a time over the mixture, mixing just until dough starts to clump together.
Divide dough into portions and roll out so that the dough accommodates the size of your pan.
