Apple Pie (LID)

I don’t bake pies often. There is so much not allowed on LID that I feel less deprived by baking treats like cupcakes and apple pie. This is my mom’s apple pie recipe that I adapted to fit LID.

Apple Pie

Apple Pie

Pie Crust:

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon non-iodized salt (I use Morton’s Coarse Kosher Salt)
2/3 cup Crisco
5 to 6 tablespoons ice cold water

Filling:

6 cups thinly sliced apples
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon lemon juice (about the amount of juice in half a lemon)

Preheat oven to 425º F.

In a large bowl, cut the Crisco into the flour and non-iodized salt with a fork or pastry blender. Add the ice cold water one tablespoon at a time until dough comes together. Divide the dough into two halves. Make a ball from one half and roll out to fit the pie pa. Put the rolled out dough into the bottom of a pie pan.

Mix the sliced apples, sugar, flour, and cinnamon together in a large bowl. Pour into the prepared pie crust. Dot with pats of butter and then sprinkle with the fresh lemon juice.

Roll out the remaining pie crust. Place over the top of the pie. Seal the two crusts together. Trim the excess dough and then crimp or flute the edges. Cut a couple of slits in the top crust. Place the pie on a baking sheet and bake at 425º F. for 40 to 50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Let cool before serving.
