Everyone’s Favorite Apple Pie

I found this pie recipe in the internet. It shows you how to make the crust and the filling. If you want to see the pictures, just go to: http://www.myhomecooking.net/apple-pie/

Pie Crust Ingredients

2 cups all-purpose flour

I teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

6 tablespoons butter

6 tablespoons shortening

6 to 8 tablespoons ice water

- First Step: Mixing the Pie Crust Ingredients

Warm the butter in the microwave until it is soft, but not melted.

Mix in a large bowl:

2 cups all-purpose flour

I teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

Then cut in using the dough blender:

6 tablespoons butter

6 tablespoons shortening

6 to 8 tablespoons ice water

- Second Step: Chill the Pie Dough

Wrap your pie crust in plastic wrap. Then place in refrigerator for 20 or more minutes, while you make the pie filling.

Apple Pie Filling Ingredients:

5 Tart Peeled Apples

1 Cup Sugar

2 Tablespoons Flour

1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon

1/4 Teaspoon Salt

1 Tablespoon Cider Vinegar

1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

- First Step: Slice Apples

Peel and slice your apples.

Soak them in water with a tablespoon of lemon juice. This will prevent the first apples cut from turning a funky color.

- Second Step: Mix Filling

Mix in large mixing bowl:

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons flour

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon vinegar

- Third Step: Mix Apples

Now, drain the water off of the apples and mix them with the spices.

Put Together Your Apple Pie

Now that you have made the pie dough and apple filling, let’s put this pie together! Make sure your pie crust has been at least 20 minutes in the refrigerator before assembling the pie.

- First Step: Cut

Now that your pie crust has had plenty of time to cool, divide it into two, equal halves.

- Second Step: Rolling Pie Crust

Roll one of the balls of pie crust out until it is around 1/8th of an inch thick.

- Third Step: Putting Crust in Pie Pan

Once you have rolled out the dough, wrap it around the rolling pin and unroll it onto your pie pan.

Once you have shaped it to fit the inside of the pan, take a fork and poke holes in the bottom of the crust. This will let the steam out as the pie bakes.

- Four Step: Filling Apple Pie

Dump all of the apples in the pie. Place about 4 chunks of butter on top of apple filling. This will give the filling rich flavor.

- Fifth Step: Putting Top Pie Crust On Pie

Roll out the remaining pie dough and place it on top.

- Six Step: Forming Edge of Pie Crust

Create a pattern around the edge of the pie by using the back of a knife.

Bake Your Apple Pie

- First Step: Baking Apple Pie

Cut long strips of tinfoil and place them around the edge of the pie.

This will prevent the crust’s edge from burning while it bakes. You will want to take the tinfoil off about ten minutes before the pie is done. This way, the apple pie will have a golden brown edge.

Bake your pie at 400 degrees for 50-60 minutes.

hint: Place a cookie sheet covered in tinfoil on the lowest oven rack (not on the same rack as the pie) to prevent any overflow from reaching the bottom of the oven–easy cleanup!

- Second Step: Brush With Egg White

For a glossy effect, brush a small portion of egg white on top of the crust when you remove the tinfoil.
