Method Oven
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 15 minutes
Servings 8 Slices


  • 9" Glass Pie Pan
  • Rolling Pin
  • Pastry Blender


Pie Crust

  • 2 cups AP Flour
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • cup plus 2 Tbsp. Shortening
  • 4 to 6 Tbsp. cold Water


  • ½ cup Sugar
  • ¼ cup AP Flour
  • ½ tsp. Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. Ground Nutmeg
  • tsp. Salt
  • 8 cups Apples – tart - {8 medium} thinly sliced peeled tart
  • 2 Tbsp. Butter


  • Heat oven to 425°F.
  • In medium bowl, mix 2 cups Flour and 1 tsp. Salt. Cut in Shortening, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until particles are size of small peas
  • Sprinkle with cold Water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry almost cleans side of bowl (1 to 2 tsps. more water can be added if necessary).
  • Gather pastry into a ball. Divide in half; shape into 2 flattened rounds on lightly floured surface. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate about 45 minutes or until dough is firm and cold, yet pliable. This allows the shortening to become slightly firm, which helps make the baked pastry flaky. If refrigerated longer, let pastry soften slightly before rolling.
  • With floured rolling pin, roll one pastry round into a round, 2 inches larger than upside-down 9-inch glass pie plate. Fold pastry into fourths; place in pie plate. Unfold and ease into plate, pressing firmly against bottom and side.
  • In large bowl, mix Sugar, 1/4 cup Flour, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and 1/8 tsp. Salt. Stir in Apples. Spoon into pastry-lined pie plate. Dot with Butter. Trim overhanging edge of pastry 1/2 inch from rim of plate.
  • Roll other round of pastry. Fold into fourths. Unfold top pastry over filling; trim overhanging edge 1 inch from rim of plate. Moisten the bottom crust edge with Water. Fold and roll top edge over lower edge, pressing on rim to seal; flute as desired. Cut slits so steam can escape. Cover edge with 3-inch strip of aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning. Remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.
  • Bake 40 To 50 Minutes or until crust is brown and juice begins to bubble through slits in crust. Serve warm if desired.
