Apple Pie Grand Champion Cooking Instructions

For crust: Sift flour with salt. Using a pastry blender, add half
the shortening to the flour mixture and cut in until crumbly. Add
remaining shortening, cutting in until mixture looks like small peas.
Add 1 tablespoon ice water to flour mixture and mix. Repeat with
additional water until all flour is thoroughly moistened. Form into a
ball. Divide ball in half. Wrap each half in wax paper and chill in

When chilled, roll out bottom crust and line pie plate with it.

For filling: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a small bowl, combine 2
tablespoons sugar and 2 tablespoons flour. Spread this mixture on
bottom crust to absorb liquid. Combine remaining sugar, flour, cinnamon
and nutmeg in a bowl and mix well. Pour sugar mixture over sliced
apples and mix well. Pour apples into pie crust. Dot with small chunks
of butter.

Roll out top crust and place on top of apples. Crimp edges and make 5
(1 1/2-inch long) slits on top of pie crust. Brush top crust lightly
with milk. Sprinkle with sugar. Bake for 5 minutes. Then reduce heat to
350 degrees and bake for 1 hour.

Note: It's best to chill all crust ingredients, including bowl, fork, flour and shortening.
