Apple Pie
Home grown goodness at its finest. No better way to impress your dinner guests over the holidays than by baking a pie from scratch. This one will work everytime.
2 Cups flour (unbleached, all purpose white / pastry flour)
¾ Cup shortening (organic)
1 egg
1 teaspoon of vinegar
6 - 8 tablespoons of cold water
Pinch of Salt
4 - 6 medium - large sized local apples

Maple Syrup
10 Easy Steps

1. Mix flour & salt. Using a pastry cutter add shortening until pastry mix has a clumpy texture.
2. Whisk egg, water and vinegar for 1 minute & add to flour and shortening (do not overmix).
3. Divide into two halves & proceed to roll out one half for crust the base pastry crust.
4. Lay base pastry crust down into pie plate.
5. Create two layers of evenly sliced apples. First layer of apples top with brown sugar & cinnamon. Second layer of apples top with cinnamon, drizzled maple syrup & flakes of butter (up to ½ teaspoon of butter).
6. If needed trim edges of excess pastry crust from pie plate with a small knife.
7. Roll out the 2nd pastry half
8. Moisten the edges of the 1st pastry crust with water (allows for easy gluing of the two pastry shells together).
9. Lay 2nd pastry half on top of apple filled crust.
10. Place 6-8 holes in the top pastry crust (for better cooking)

Create personalized edging for pie & wash top pie crust with milk for better browning. Bake for 40-50 minutes at 450 degrees. Let cool 1 hour. Serve with one scoop of Dee Dee’s locally made Vanilla ice cream. With spare pastry dough, make cinnamon buns?
