Total time: 95 Minutes

Prep Time: 40 minutes

Cook Time: 50 Minutes

Yield: 1 pie (8-10 servings)


For the Pie Crust

1 cup all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon salt

¼ cup butter (chilled)

3 tablespoons of water (ice-cold)

For the Apple Filling

2 cups of Granny Smith Apples (Peeled, cored and slices)

1 tablespoon of lemon juice

¼ cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons of granulated sugar

1 ½ tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons of butter


For the Pie Crust

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and salt. Cut in the chilled butter, using two knives or a pastry blender.

Sprinkle in the ice water into the mixture, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing with a fork after each addition.

Using your hands, form the dough into a ball. Roll the dough into an 11-inch circle between two sheets of plastic wrap coated with cooking spray, to reduce sticking.

Place the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes so it becomes slightly firm and uniform.

Preheat the oven to 425 F.

Remove the top sheet of plastic wrap from the pie dough

Turn the dough over into a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray and remove the remaining layer of plastic wrap. Using your fingers, press the dough into the pie plate and flute the edges.
