DIRECTIONS ON HOW TO MAKE CLASSIC APPLE PIE RECIPE

Preheat oven to 375°. 

Combine and mix all apple pie filling ingredients in a bowl. Cover and set aside to marinate.

 

Double Pie Crust:

Before starting, place all ingredients in freezer to be cold to ensure the crust comes out flaky. Grease a pie dish and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, mix 2-1/3 cups flour, 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or fresh lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1 cup chilled butter slices. Using a pastry blender, work the mixture until you get a crumbly texture with about 1/2-inch inch butter chunks.

Starting with 1/4 cup ice water, gradually add the ice water into the mixture then your fingertips, work dough until it just comes together into a ball. Set aside ice water in case you need more later if the dough dries out.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap to prevent drying and refrigerate for a 1/2 hour before rolling out.

Divide dough ball evenly in half with a dough scraper. Wrap 1 half in the plastic wrap and return to the refrigerator to chill while you work what will be the bottom crust. 

On a lightly floured surface, roll half the dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to the pie dish. Chill bottom dough

Transfer the apple pie filling, pour any excess pie filling juice over the apple slices.

Roll remaining dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edge. Cut slits in top. Beat egg white until foamy; brush over crust. 

Bake on the lowest rack 60-70 minutes, until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, covering with foil halfway if crust begins to get too dark. 

Cool on a wire rack. If desired, serve with ice cream and caramel sauce.
