One sliver of this apple pie will leave your tastebuds begging for more. It’s an adaptation of my two favorite pie recipes and is just about as down-home as it gets.

Ingredients for Pie Crust (Makes 2 crusts)
3 cups flour
1- 1/4 cups shortening
1 tsp salt
1 egg
5 tbs water
1 tbs white vinegar

Combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening. Set aside. In a separate bowl, mix egg, water, and vinegar. Add to the dry mixture and mix until a soft dough forms.

Ingredients for Pie Filling:
6-7 Apples (Macintosh or Gala)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup butter (or more depending on consistency of the crumbs)

Peel, core, and slice apples. Arrange in pie crust. Coat apples with granulated sugar and cinnamon mixture. Next, in a separate bowl, add brown sugar, flour, and butter to make crumbs. Sprinkle crumbs on top of the apple slices.

Place pie in a preheated 375 degree oven and bake for approximately 25 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for approximately another 20 minutes.
Remove from oven when apples are soft when broken into with a fork.
