Ingredients
  • Crust:
  • 2 1/8 cups sifted flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2/3 cup chilled vegetable shortening
  • 5 tablespoons ice water
  • Filling
  • 8 cups apples, peeled, cored and cut into eighths
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cold
Directions
Crust:
  • Place flour and salt in bowl. Cut in shortening until it resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle ice water over surface (1 tablespoon at a time). Mix lightly until it holds together. Do not over-mix. Cut in half, wrap in plastic and keep in refrigerator until ready to roll.

  • Put apples in large bowl and pour lemon juice over them. In another bowl add dry ingredients and then add to the apples.

  • Assembly: Roll out 1 of the dough halves to an 1/8-inch thickness. Lay into pie pan with a little bit overlapping the sides. Put apple mixture into pie shell, mounding it higher in the center. Cut cold butter into 1/2-inch cubes and place on top of the apples. Moisten outer edge of bottom crust, place top crust on pie and press down.

  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees F. When ready to put pie in oven turn temperature down to 450 degrees F and bake on lower rack until it starts to brown, about 15 minutes.

  • Turn oven down to 375 degrees and bake approximately 1 to 1 1/4 hours
