Recipe #147: Jenny's Apple Pie

While I was making Chicken Piccata for Christmas Eve dinner, my sister Jenny was prepping a homemade apple pie.  She used a corer/slicer from Pampered Chef that made everything a bit easier.  The pie was PERFECT, and we served it with vanilla ice cream!

For the crust:  Use a fork to mix together 2/3c shortening, 2c flour, 1tsp salt, 5-7tb water.  It should be just moist enough to roll.  Divide in half.  Roll one about 1" diameter larger than the pie pan.  Dough should cover bottom, sides, and slightly drape over edges.

For the filling:  Peel, core and thinly slice 5 large granny smith apples and place.  Mix together 1/5c sugar, 2 tbs cinnamon, 2 tbs flour.  Pour over apple slices and stir to coat.  Fill open pie shell with apple mixture.  It will be heaping.  Roll out second dough ball and cover apples.  Pinch the edges, and poke holes in top of pie with a knife.  Place pie pan on cookie sheet with edges to catch drippings.

Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.
