Hello friends!!! Some exciting news to share with you, I’ve officially finished my first year of college!!!! Aside from feeling so grown-up, I am so excited to start this summer off to a great start!!! Now that I have a kitchen to cook in, I decided I better get started on my goal to start cooking and baking more!
Today, I decided I’d definitely bake a dessert… but oh, how to choose?!?
I wanted something chocolately, something that would take a long time to prepare and have many steps… so I ended up scratching the chocolate and went for an apple pie!!!
I am here to share the recipe with you guys in hopes that you may too find fall comfort in the summer!
Just a side note– I would do this recipe differently next time by cutting the apples into thicker slices. For me, the crunch of the apples in the pie is wonderful! Not to the extent of raw crunchiness, but some is good! If you like mushier, or softer apples, cut the apples thinner!
Also, top the top layer of crust with a sprinkle of granulated sugar and brush with milk to brown the crust!
The recipe’s delicious ingredients consist of:
2 cups All-Purpose Flour (sifted)
1 teaspoon Salt
2/3 cup of shortening (I used coconut oil!)
4-7 tablespoons of ICE COLD water
5-8 Granny Smith Apples, Peeled, Sliced Thin
3/4-1 cup of Granulated Sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
Dash of nutmeg
Lemon juice (to keep apple slices from browning)
2 tablespoons of butter (chopped into pieces to put on top of filling once inside pie crust)
