Lisa’s Lovely Apple Pie
Makes 2 double crust pies
3 cups of flour 2 tbsp flour
1 cup butter flavored Crisco ¼ tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt ¼ tsp. nutmeg
2 tbsp. cider vinegar butter
1 cup cold water
7-9 pared & sliced apples (mix varieties, i.e. Granny Smith, Honey Crisp, Courtland)
½ cup sugar
Cut flour, shortening and salt into pieces until like coarse cornmeal
Combine vinegar & cold water (place in a bed of ice to keep super cold).
Add 4-5 tablespoons liquid to ¼ of flour mixture
Make into a ball & repeat
Place 4 balls wrapped in wax paper in refrigerator to chill.
Combine flour, cinnamon, nutmeg in a separate bowl
Mix with apples until well coated
Roll out crusts on well-floured surface & place glass pie dish
Lay coated apples into crust, stack them, do not just dump them in
Place a few slabs on top of apples and cover with top crust
Now ’back in the day’ I used to blow a kiss into the pie before I place the top crust on… since the pandemic hit, I now just toss a little love and good wishes with a wave of my hand!
Trim and pinch edges and cut venting holes.
OR if you’re feeling adventurous do a lattice crust!
