Simple Apple Pie from Scratch

This recipe is noted for the ease of creating, managing, and placing the dough into the pie pan to form the lower and upper crusts.

Serves 6 to 8

Ingredients for Crust

  • 2 cups white flour
  • 1 tspn salt
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup water

Preparation of Crust

  1. Blend the dry ingredients (flour, salt, and sugar). A cuisinart works very nicely.
  2. Cut in the shortening until the mixture is gravelly.
  3. Cut in the butter until the mixture is pebbly.
  4. Cut in the water until the dough is smooth and firm.
  5. Ball the dough and slice it into two not quite equal hemispheres.
  6. Roll each hemisphere of dough between two sheets of waxed paper (one top and one bottom layer) to form a disc slightly larger than a 9" pie pan.. Square pieces of standard width waxed paper works nicely. Roll the dough for the larger disc out to reach the edges of the paper. The slightly larger disc will serve as the bottom crust.
  7. Leave each disc between the waxed paper and refrigerate while preparing the apple filling (next).

Ingredients for the Apple Filling

  • 3 lbs of apples (tart apples, or a mixture of tart and sweet, are best for a pie that is not too sweet)
  • 1/3 cup white sugar

Preparation of the Apple Filling

  1. Peel and core the apples.
  2. Slice each apple into thin slices (about 12 thin wedges).
  3. Toss with the sugar.

Combine and Bake

  1. Remove the discs of dough from the refrigerator.
  2. Peel one sheet of waxed paper from the large disc.
  3. Line the bottom of the 9" pie pan (glass is recommended) with the bottom crust by first flash-warming the remaing waxed-paper side of the disc (pass it over a stove top burner) to make it easy to peel off later. Pop the disc of dough, bare side down, into the pan. Gently push the dough to conform to the shape of the pan. Peal off the remining waxed paper.
  4. Add the apple filling. Adjust the slices of apple to minimize air spaces.
  5. Peel the waxed paper from one side of the other, slightly smaller disc of dough. Flash-warm the waxed paper side of the disc as above.
  6. Pop the top crust down to enclose the top of the pie. Peal back the remaining waxed paper.
  7. Roll up and pinch the dough around the edge of the pie pan to form a nice rim.
  8. Poke holes with a fork all over the top of the pie to allow steam to easily escape.
  9. Start baking the pie at 450 deg F for 15 minutes to pop the crust.
  10. Drop the temperature to 350 deg F to finish baking (about 40 minutes).
