Apple Pie Is Fun To Make

Butter Crust:            Bake 350 degrees approx 1/2 hour check with sharp knife through slits on top.

2 1/2 C.Flour
1/2 teasp. salt
1 C Butter chilled diced
1/2 C Ice Cold Water
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water, a tablespoon at a time, until mixture forms a ball. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
  2. Roll dough out to fit a 9 inch pie plate.I always use parchment paper. Place crust in pie plate. Press the dough evenly into the bottom and sides of the pie plate.
 Mix Together the following in a bowl and turn into the crust, add top crust, pinch around sides,  make" tic-tac- toe" slits on top to let out steam.  With leftover dough make some leaves to add some pizzazz to the pie. See photos below.
