Min’s Apple Pie

This is my apple pie recipe, I have made apple pies many times using this recipe and my family loved it. This recipe is enough to feed 5 hungry tummies.

2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4  cup shortening (for flakiness)
1/2 cup cold margerine or butter

4 to 6 tablespoon iced water

Apples, cut into slices (I use 4 apples, any type)
1/2 cup or less sugar,
3 tablespoon all purpose flour
2 tablespoon margerine or butter, pinch of cinnamon (if you like)

Preheat the oven. Prepare apple filling. Mix apples with sugar, flour and pinch of cinnamon.

pie-top-crust.JPGCover with top crust. Make any decorative edges or if you’re lazy, just press with fork all the way round. Don’t forget to poke some holes on the top crust to let the steam out. Brush with egg yolk for that extra shine. Bake about 50 minutes. If the top browns too quickly, cover loosely with aluminum foil. Apple pie is good on its own, with vanilla ice cream or whip cream. Enjoy.
