  1. 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  2. 1 cup vegetable shortening, room temperature
  3. 2 tablespoons cold water
  4. 1 egg, lightly beaten
  5. 1 tsp of vinegar
  1. 6 Apples (peeled and sliced)
  2. 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
  3. 1/4 cup white sugar
  4. 1/4 cup brown sugar
  5. 1 heaping tsp cinnamon
  6. 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  7. caramel topping (optional)
  8. splash of Bourbon
  1. Combine the flour and shortening into a bowl and mix by hand or with a pastry cutter until there are no large chunks of shortening remains.
  2. Add the beaten egg, cold water, and vinegar to the flour mixture and incorporate
  3. Separate the dough into two evenly sized portions and place into a ziplock bag
  4. Using a rolling pin, flatten the dough (makes for easier rolling later) and place in the freezer for 20-30 minutes
  5. While the dough is setting
  6. Peel, core, and slice your apples in thin wedges (into 16 pieces).
  7. In your mixing bowl, combine apples, flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, caramel topping and bourbon. Toss evenly until apples are completely coated. (A taste is never a bad idea)
  8. Dust your surface (or use wax paper as a base) and begin to roll out your dough portions into a uniform thickness, approximately 1-inch larger than the size of your pie plate.
  9. Carefully transfer the crust to your pie dish (using a spatula if necessary to loosen the dough) and press firmly into place.
  10. Fold edges into your pan evenly and trim any excess dough.
  11. Add Pie Filling
  12. Place second pie crust atop of the filling and pinch edges together creating a seal. Cut slits into the top of the crust to release steam as you cook the pie.
  13. Cover outer edge of the crust with Aluminum Foil
  14. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and bake approximately 30-40 minutes until apples are tender.
