Prep Time: 20 minutes
bake Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 10 minutes

Ingredients

Pie Crust

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

Pie Filling

  • 6 c. peeled and sliced apples
  • 2/3 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 t. ground nutmeg
  • 2 T. unsalted butter, cut into 4 or 5 pieces

Instructions

  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.
  3. Meanwhile, add sliced apples, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg to a large bowl and toss gently to combine.
  4. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and divide into 2 even sections. Roll out each piece of dough into a 10-11 inch diameter for a 9-inch pie.
  5. Line a 9-inch pie pan with one of the crusts. Transfer the apple filling to the pie crust.
  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!

Notes

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