2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tbsp icing sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening, cubed
1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
1 tbsp cider vinegar
2 tbsp cold water
6 apples, peeled, sliced and cut into chunks
1/3 cup granulated white sugar
1 tbsp all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
splash whole milk
sprinkle granulated white sugar
The ball of dough from the fridge was rolled out next. Before transferring to my pie, I cut out the shape of a tree with branches. Once the pie top was in place, I trimmed the excess pastry with a knife and crimped the edges using my thumb and index finger.
To finish, I brushed the pie top with a little whole milk and sprinkled it with sugar. My pie baked in the oven at 425 degrees (F) for 10 minutes, then I lowered the heat to 350 degrees (F) and baked it for another 50 minutes until the filling bubbled.
Fall apple pie. Happy Thanksgiving!
