Apple Pie

Made this for Clark's birthday and even though it is a basic recipe Cheryl thought I should publish it so here it is. The crust and filling recipes are found in Grandma's Gracious Goodness, my mothers cookbook.

Good and Easy Pie Crust
Makes 4- 9 inch crusts

3 C flour
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp sugar
1 1/3 C lard or shortening

Combine first four ingredients and then cut in shortening .

Mix together and add:
1 large beaten egg
1 TBS vinegar or lemon juice
7 TBS cold water

Mix into dry ingredients with a fork. Smooth with hands and divide and roll out on floured cloth or surface.


3 C peeled, sliced tart apples
3/4 C sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
dash of salt
2-4 TBS butter

Mix dry ingredients and pour over apples in a pastry lined pan. Dot generously with butter. Wet edges of under crust; cover with upper crust and press edges together and flute if desired. Make slashes in top crust in a flower design or other design to let steam out while cooking. Sprinkle a little sugar on top crust and bake at 425 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes
