What more is there to say than, this is the best apple pie I have ever tasted/created. Pink Lady Apples are the secret to this recipe. It brings the slightly sour taste of a Granny smith, and the sweetness of a Gala Apple to a bursting flavor that blends so well it'll make you crave it all week long.
Best Ever Apple Pie!!!
2 Cups Flour
3/4 Teaspoon Salt
2/3 Cup Shortening or Butter
6 Tablespoons Ice Water

8 Cups of thinly Sliced Pink Lady Apples
3/4 Cup of sugar
3/4-1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
2 Tablespoons Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/8 Teaspoon Nutmeg (Optional. I always leave it out.)
Pie Crust:
Combine first 4 ingredients in cuisinart Stand mixer bowl as follows:
1. Combine flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly.
2. Gradually add water, Pulsing on and off until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half so one ball is slightly larger than the other.

3. Roll out the larger ball to fit a 9-in. or 10-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry even with the edge of a plate.

4. Set second ball of dough to the side covered to roll out after we finish the filling.


1. Heat oven to 400 Degrees F.
2. Mix all filling ingredients in a large bowl. *In the beginning there will look like there is not enough liquid, but as you mix, you will find there to be quite a bit.
3. Place inside the double crust and cover with second crust. *Place slits in the top or you can decorate the top crust with a cookie cutter design.
4. Bake 15 minutes and cover the edges of the crust, and then bake an additional 25-35 minutes.
5. Cool for at least an hour.
6. Cut and enjoy with some Vanilla Bean Ice cream!

Servings: 8-12
