*In a large bowl combine 4 cups flour, 1 tbsp sugar, and 1 1/2 tsp salt. (I put in just a little extra sugar because I like a sweeter crust.)
*Cut in 1 1/2 cups butter flavored shortening with a fork.
*In a measuring cup, measure out 1/2 cup cold water. Add to it 1 egg and 1 tbsp vinegar. Mix together and pour into dry mixture.
*Mix wet and dry ingredients with your hands and form into a ball.
*Go ahead a preheat the over to 475 and grease a pie pan.
* Here is what you will need for the filling:
*In a small bowl combine 1 cup sugar, 1/4 tsp sugar, 1/8 tsp salt, and 2 tbsp flour.
*Add to the apples and mix well.
*Split your pie dough in half.
*Roll out half of the dough and line the pie pan with it.
*Pour in apple mixture.
*Roll out the other half of the dough and place on top of apples.
*Seal edges and cut vents in top of crust.
*Sprinkle top of dough with sugar so it will be nice and crispy when it is done.
*Turn oven down to 450 and out pie in for 15 minutes (Make sure you put your pie on a cookie sheet in case any filling leaks out while baking.)
*Turn down to 375 and bake for 60-75 minutes
*Let cool and enjoy!
*So good! Totally worth the time and effort!
