How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • Place flours and salt into a mixing bowl.
  • Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarsemeal.
  • Slowly add acidulated water by the spoonful, mixing until a flaky dough forms.
  • Divide dough in half and roll out one half, then line a lightly sprayed 9" pie tin with the dough.
  • Combine apples, maple syrup, cinnamon and ginger in a large bowl, stirring well to coat everything.
  • Pour apples into the pie crust. It will look like a freaking ton, but trust me it's worth it!
  • Roll out other pastry half and top the apples, sealing the edges well.
  • Dock crust with a fork 3-4 times for ventilation (you don't want all your hard work to explode in your oven!)
  • Place pie on a baking sheet and slide into the preheated oven.
  • Bake 10 minutes, then reduce the heat to 350F.
  • Bake for 45 minutes and remove to wire rack to cool.

    Mmmmmmmm... this looks amazing!!! I love the fact that there is Maple Syrup in it. My Uncle and Auntie had a Maple Syrup business in Penetanguishene, Ontario and ohhhhhhhhh, the maple syrup was the best!!! Thank you for this recipe Jo_Jo
