Pie Crust Recipe

Pie Crust Ingredients: pie crust recipe
  • 3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1¼ c. vegetable shortening
  • 7-12 T. ice-cold water
Directions:
To prepare pie crust, add flour, salt, and vegetable shortening to a large bowl and mix with a hand mixer. Gradually add ice-cold water until the dough binds together and can form a ball. Place in the refrigerator and chill for 30 minutes.  Remove the dough from the refrigerator and divide into 2 even sections. Roll out each piece of dough into a 10-11 inch diameter for a 9-inch pie. Prepare your pie filling and transfer filling to your pie crust.

Apple Pie Recipe

Pie Filling Ingredients:
  • 6 c. peeled and sliced apples
  • 2/3 c. granulated sugar
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 t. ground nutmeg
  • 2 T. unsalted butter, cut into 4 or 5 pieces
Add sliced apples, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg to a large bowl and toss gently to combine. Line a 9-inch pie pan with a pie crust. Transfer the apple filling to the pie crust. Place top crust over the pie and crimp the edges together. Cut 4-5 vents into the top crust with a sharp knife and place a small piece of butter in each. Cover edges with foil or a pie crust protector to prevent over browning.

Bake for 10 minutes at 450°F. Reduce temperature to 350°F and continue baking for another 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving with ice cream for a Pie a la Mode.

Mini Pies

This is a fun way for kids to have a small pie portion and works well for making pies in a classroom setting. Make pie crust according to your recipe. Roll dough out and cut into small circles about 5-6 inches around. You can find a bowl or large glass with about that diameter.

Have each child press your pie dough inside a greased muffin tin making sure dough comes up along the top edge. Add pie filling and add a second circle for the top or create a decorative top.

Bake at 375 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until pie is golden brown.
