Apple Pie - Recipe 

Ingredients:

Ingredients:

  • 5-6 tart apples (we like to use Granny Smith, Spies, Galas, Russet, Cortland)
  • 360g or 2+⅔ cup all purpose flour (plus extra for dusting) 
  • 285g or 1 ¼  cup COLD vegetable shortening
  • 125ml or ½ cup COLD water
  • 100g or ½ cup sugar (plus extra for sprinkling)
  • 2-3 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • ½ of a lemon or 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • A few pinches of salt
  • 1 egg for egg wash (1 egg + 2 tablespoons of water )
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar (optional)
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)

    Method:

    1. In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, salt, butter, and shortening.
    2. Rub shortening into the flour until reduced to pea-sized crumbs.
    3. Sprinkle cold water( or water with brown sugar) over the flour mixture until it just comes together and the dough appears to have marbling throughout. .
    4. Transfer dough to a floured table, shape into a thick disc, cover tightly with plastic wrap and allow to rest in the freezer for at least 15 minutes before rolling.
    5. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Grab your dough from the freezer. Lightly flour your work surface and begin to roll out your  pie dough. 
    6. Once large enough to cover your pie plate, roll dough onto your rolling pin, then place in pie your dish. Cut off excess dough with a paring knife. 
    7. Next, peel and cut apples, then add to a bowl and mix together with sugar, cornstarch, lemon, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
    8. Pour apple mixture  into the crust, leaving room around the edges to seal dough. Roll out the remaining dough and place on top. Use a paring knife or fork to cut indents into the top of your dough to allow steam to escape.
    9. Seal the edges of your dough, then brush with egg wash and sprinkle with sugar.
    10. Bake in preheated oven at 375F for 20 minutes then reduce heat to 350 ̊ F and bake for an additional 40 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and centre of the pie is bubbling.
    11. If you choose to freeze your pie, bake from frozen at 375 ̊ F for 30 minutes and 350 ̊ F for an additional 60 minutes.
