Tuesday, November 11, 2008 Oh My Apple Pie

Abby and I made this today and had it for dessert after supper. It was sooo good and worth the extra effort.

The Crust (my Great-Grandma's recipe):

Yields: 6 single or 3 double pie crusts

5 c. four
1 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 lb lard
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 tbsp. vinegar
water to make 3/4 c.

Mix flour, powder, salt and sugar. Cut in lard until it is oatmeal consistency. Beat egg

in measuring cup, add vinegar and water to make 3/4 c. total. Add slowly and only as much as needed to make dough cling together. (I actually needed more water than this.)

Handle gently. Don't kneat it. Divide in to 6 disks. Chill for 1 hr. before rolling if dough is too soft to handle.

Bake portions you are using for 10 mins. at 450 before adding filling.

Apple Pie Filling

3/4 c. sugar

1/4 t. salt

6 c. diced apples

1/2 t. cinnamon

2 tbsp. flour

2 tbsp. melted butter

Combine all ingredients. Pour into pie shell. Bake at 375 for 45 mins.
