How to make it

  • Pate Brisee (makes enough for 6 double-crust 4-inch pies):
  • Pulse flour, salt, and sugar in a food processor until combined.
  • Add butter, and process until mixture resembles coarse meal, about 10 seconds.
  • With the machine running, add water in a slow, steady stream until mixture just begins to hold together.
  • Shape dough into 2 disks.
  • Wrap each in plastic, and refrigerate 1 hour to 2 days (or freeze for up to 1 month; thaw in refrigerator before using).
  • Mile High Apple Pie:
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the smaller piece of pate brisee into a 15-inch round about 1/8-inch thick, dusting surface with flour to prevent sticking, as needed.
  • Brush off excess flour.
  • Roll dough around rolling pin, and place over a deep-dish 9-inch pie plate.
  • Line plate with dough, pressing it into the corners.
  • Trim dough to within 1 inch of the pie plate.
  • Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate.
  • Roll out remaining piece of dough into an 18-inch round.
  • Transfer round to a baking sheet; cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate.
  • Peel and core apples, and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
  • Place slices in a large bowl; sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent discoloration.
  • In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar, and cinnamon; toss with apple slices.
  • Remove remaining dough from refrigerator; place apple mixture into prepared pie plate, mounding it in a tall pile.
  • Dot filling with butter.
  • Place dough round over the apples.
  • Tuck edge of top dough between edge of bottom dough and rim of pan.
  • Using your fingers, gently press both layers of dough along the edge to seal, and crimp as desired.
  • Using a paring knife, cut several vents in top of dough to allow steam to escape.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together egg yolk with 2 tablespoons water to make a glaze.
  • Brush surface with egg glaze; sprinkle with sugar.
  • Place on a baking sheet, this will catch any juices that may overflow during baking.
  • Bake until crust is golden, about 15 minutes.
  • Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking until crust is golden brown and juices are bubbling, 45 to 50 minutes.
  • Remove from oven, and let cool completely before serving.
