    Ok

    Double Pie Crust:

    1 cup Shortening
    2 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
    1 tsp Salt
    1 cup Cold Water
    Egg white


    Apple Pie:
    1 Double Crust Pie
    1/2 cup Unsalted Butter
    3 tblsp All Purpose Flour
    1/2 White Sugar
    1/2 cup Brown Sugar
    1/4 cup Water
    1 tsp Cinnamon
    1/2 tsp Nutmeg
    1 tblsp Vanilla
    8 Granny Smith Apples (I pick ones with a little red/yellow on them so its not so sour!)


    *Mix Flour, Salt, Shortening with fork till very crumbly
    *Add water as needed to hold together (I slowly ad turn it and add water where there is more crumbs)
    -Mix lightly with fork till ball forms
    *Chill 30 minutes
    *Cut ball in half
    *Roll on floured surface with floured pin one crust at a time
    -I go ahead and lay the crust in the pie dish and brush with egg white then I cut the lattice crust and lady it on a plate then put both back in the fridge


    While the crust is chilling this is when I peel and slice my apples.
    I slice my apples thin and long.
    Then cover them and put in the fridge till I need them



    1. Melt butter in sauce pan
    -Stir in flour to form paste
    -Add vanilla, white sugar, brown sugar, and water
    -Bring to boil
    -Reduce heat and let simmer

    2. Fill pie with apples slightly mounding (pie crust should already be in)
    -Pour part of the filling in
    -Lattice Top
    -Pour filling all over lattice (If you want a less candy like topping like the first pic add a TOUCH of water to filling and mix)
    -Foil sides of pie

    3. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes
    -Remove foil from edges and bake another 15 minutes




    Good luck!
