No one makes an apple pie better than my mom…the crust is flaky, the apples are tender, cinnamony and buttery. Mmmmm…I can go on and on! Serve this warm out of the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream -I guarantee you’ll be back for seconds.

IMG_2985In a large bowl combine apples, butter, all spice, cinnamon, flour, brown sugar, and white sugar.

Mix well.

For crust, in a separate bowl, cut in shortening with flour. Yes, you can literally “cut” it in with two knives-it just makes little lumps, like so.

Add remaining ingredients: milk, vinegar and salt.

Mix with *clean* hands.

Divide into two equal balls (one for the top crust, one for the bottom crust).

Flour a surface and the top of the ball of crust well. Roll out to about 9 inches (enough to cover your pie pan and then some-you can eyeball it).

Place bottom crust onto an un-greased pie pan and poke with a fork.

Fill with apple filling.

Do the same with the top crust and lay on top, pinch the sides together to close up the pie. Brush with egg white and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Cover the crust with foil and bake in an oven pre-heated to 375 for 25 mins.

Uncover and bake an additional 25 mins or until lightly browned.
