Grandma’s Organic Apple Pie

There is just something about apple pie. It practically sings of grandma and aprons with flour and hugs and that warm spicy smell of grandma’s kitchen. Grandma’s hand holding her paring knife slicing delicious crisp apples, their peels in a pile by her elbow. She would glance down at me and smile as I reached up, my small hand, and took an apple she had just sliced.  What warm wonderful memories. 
5 Organic Apples
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice (Optional)
2 Crusts
2-3 Tablespoons Raw Organic Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Free Range Egg
1 1/2 Teaspoon Tapioca Flour or Corn Starch

Crust Ingredients:

 (makes 1)
1 1/4 Cups Organic Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cups Organic Butter
3-4 Tablespoons Cold Water
 

In a medium size, bowl place your flour and salt. Stir and add half of your butter and cut in. Add water and stir. Slice the other half of the butter into thin slices and knead into dough. Place in the fridge so the butter can harden.

Roll crust out until it fits the bottom of your pan. Cut off extra. Stretch across the pan and use a fork to prick the dough across the bottom. Slice apples and fill the pan. Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar over top and add the lemon juice.

 

Roll the second crust out and cut into long strips. Weave the pieces back and forth across the top (over one strip under another) so it looks like a basket. If you have extra strips you can use them to make a bow or letter for the top of your pie.

 
 

Beat egg and brush on top. Bake 350 for 25 minutes. Serve warm or cold, we love to have ours with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Mmmm! So good!
