Pie Crust Ingredients:

3 c. all-purpose flour
1 t. salt
1¼ c. vegetable shortening
7-12 T. ice-cold water

Pie Filling Ingredients:

6 c. peeled and sliced apples
2/3 c. granulated sugar
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/8 t. ground nutmeg

Note: To make a deep dish pie, double the filling ingredients and roll out the bottom crust to a 12-13 inch diameter.


1. Place top oven rack in center position and pre-heat oven to 450°F.

2. To prepare pie crust, add flour, salt, and vegetable shortening to a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer. Gradually add ice-cold water until the dough binds together and can form a ball. Place in the refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes.

6. Place top crust over the pie and crimp the edges together. Cut 4-5 vents into the top crust with a sharp knife and place a small piece of butter in each. Cover edges with foil or a pie crust protector to prevent over browning.

7. Bake for 10 minutes at 450°F. Reduce temperature to 350°F and continue baking for another 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving with some No Churn Vanilla Ice Cream, if desired. Enjoy!
