How to make it

  • Method for filling
  • In a bowl, mix sliced apple with lemon juice set aside. In a mixing blow, mix sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg and add sliced apple. Add vanilla extract and put aside.
  • Method for Pie Crust
  • Cut the sticks of butter into 1/2-inch cubes and place in the freezer for 15 minutes to an hour (the longer the better) so that they become thoroughly chilled.
  • Dough is ready to shape.
  • Combine flour, salt, and sugar in a large mixing bowl and mix well. Add butter and mixed well with flour. Using s spatula, cut the cutter into smaller pieces and keep on coating the butter with flour.
  • Remove dough from mixing bowl and place in a mound on a clean surface. Gently shape into 2 discs. Knead the dough just enough to form the discs, do not over-knead. You should be able to see little bits of butter in the dough. These small chunks of butter are what will allow the resulting crust to be flaky. Sprinkle a little flour around the discs. Wrap each disc in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour, and up to 2 days.
  • Remove one crust disk from the refrigerator. Let sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes in order to soften just enough to make rolling out a bit easier. Roll out with a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface to a 12-inch circle; about 1/8 of an inch thick. As you roll out the dough, check if the dough is sticking to the surface below. If necessary, add a few sprinkles of flour under the dough to keep the dough from sticking. Carefully place onto a 9-inch pie plate. Gently press the pie dough down so that it lines the bottom and sides of the pie plate. Use a pair of kitchen scissors to trim the dough to within 1/2 inch of the edge of the pie dish.
  • Final Step
  • Add filling to the pie
  • Roll out second disk of dough, as before. Cut out strips of about ½ inch to lay each strip of dough on the pie and seal both ends by pressing down the on the edge. Dot with butter.
  • Bake in preheated 450°F oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F, and bake for 45 minutes.
