A delicious old-fashioned and blue ribbon award winning apple pie recipe that will knock your socks off.
  • 2 cups flour, plus more for rolling dough
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
  • 1 cup shortening (Crisco really does work the best for me)
  • ¼ cup cold water
  • 5 large or 6-7 medium Honeycrisp apples, peeled, cored, and sliced ⅛″ thick.
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  1. Mix the flour, salt and shortening together in a medium bowl with a pastry cutter, until all the flour and shortening are combined. Add the water and use your hands to pull the dough together into a ball.
  2. Create two disks with the dough, 5 inches wide by 1 inch thick (approximately).
  3. Roll out the first disk on a heavily floured surface with a well-floured rolling pin. Don’t hesitate to add more flour along the way if things get sticky. Once your crust is about 4-5″ bigger than your pie dish, roll it onto the rolling pin and unroll it off onto your dish.
  4. Mix the sugar with the flour and cinnamon in a bowl.
  5. Spoon a 1-2 tablespoons of the mixture onto the bottom of the pie crust in your dish. Add a layer of sliced apples until you can’t see the bottom anymore. Then sprinkle another 1-2 tablespoons of the sugar mixture over this layer.
  6. I use a very deep pie dish, so I probably do this 3-4 times. You may do it less if you are using a standard depth pie dish.
  7. Heap enough apples into the pie that you simply can’t add anymore without them starting to fall out. Top the apples with one more layer of the sugar mixture.
  8. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  9. Roll out your top crust with the second half of the pie dough. It doesn’t need to be quite as large as the first one. Roll it out the same way, and roll it onto your rolling pin to transfer it to the top of your pie.
  10. You can pinch the top crust together with the bottom crust around the edges with your fingers, or use a fork like I did above.
  11. Sprinkle the last bit of the cinnamon sugar mixture over the top and pop that beauty into the oven.
  12. Cook for 20 minutes then reduce the heat to 350 degrees and cook for another 30-35 minutes.
