Apple Pie

Chris Rubesch, WFC Promotions & Education Coordinator& Member-Owner

6 local Apples, cored and sliced – tart apples are better for baking pie

1/3 c White Sugar

1/4 c All-Purpose Flour

1/4 t Cinnamon, ground

2 c All-Purpose Flour

1 t Salt

2/3 c Shortening

3 T Butter

1/4 c Cold Water

1 T Half-and-Half

1 t White Sugar

Place apple slices into a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together 1/4 cup flour, 1/3 cup sugar, and cinnamon, and then sprinkle over apples. Cover, and let sit overnight in refrigerator.

Then, when you are ready to make the pie, begin by making the pastry. In a large bowl, mix together 2 cups flour and salt. Cut in the shortening and 2 tablespoons butter until the mixture is the consistency of cornmeal. Make a well in the center of the mixture, and add cold water. Stir together to form a ball. Let rest 20 minutes.  Roll out dough, and place in pie pan. Spread apple mixture into the pastry lined pan, and dot with 1 tablespoon butter. Cover with top crust, and seal the edges. Cut a few slits in the top to allow steam to escape. Using a pastry brush, lightly brush half-and-half over the top crust. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar.  Finally, bake in a preheated 400 degrees F for 10 minutes. Turn oven to 350 degrees F. Continue cooking for 30 to 40 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
