Procedure edit

Pie crust edit

  1. Rub flour, margarine, lard, and salt together until the mixture has the consistency of fine breadcrumbs.
  2. Gently mix in 2 tablespoons water to make a soft but firm dough.
  3. Divide dough in half, then roll each half out on floured surface to the size you want your pie.
  4. Use one crust to line your pie pan.

Filling edit

  1. Core, peel, and slice the apples into ⅛–¼-inch (0.5–1 cm) segments.
  2. Add lemon juice to the apple segments.
  3. Transfer excess juices to the pie pan.
  4. Combine the sugar and water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring gently until the sugar dissolves and you get a simple syrup. Remove from the heat and let cool until just warm.
  5. In a separate bowl, mix the cinnamon, nutmeg, flour, and cornstarch.
  6. Combine the apples, spice mixture, and syrup in a bowl. Toss well.
  7. Transfer the apple filling to the crust-lined pie pan.
  8. Cover the filling with the second pie crust and make three slits on top.
  9. Crimp the edges of the crust together, making a decorative border if desired.
  10. Bake in the oven at 350°F (175°C) for 60 minutes or until golden brown.
  11. Take out the pie and let cool.
  12. If desired, serve warm with ice cream, frozen custard, or frozen yogurt.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • You can also use 2 store-bought pie crusts instead of making the dough from scratch.
