Apple Filling

  • 6 cups Peeled, cored, and sliced Apples red delicious or gala
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • 2 cups all-pupose flour sifted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 4 tablespoons water cold


  • Preheat oven at 400 degrees.
  • Measure apples and put into a large bowl stir in lemon juice and set aside
    while preparing pastry crust.

  • Blend flour, salt and shortening until it feels like small peas. Add COLD water and blend until dough starts sticking together. Divide dough in half and turn out on to a floured surface and roll out for the bottom crust. Take care and do not overwork the dough or it will get tough and will not be tender.
  • To the sliced apples add remainder of ingredients and mix well. Top with sliced butter. Roll out the remainder of dough and place on top of the apples, seal edges. Brush the top of crust lightly with milk and sprinkle with cinnamon and granulated sugar.
  • Bake at 400 degrees or 50 min or until done.
