  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 6 tablespoons ice water
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 7 tablespoons vegetable shortening


  • 8 cups thinly sliced peeled Braeburn apples
  • (about 8 medium)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  • Cooking spray
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Preheat oven to 450°.

To prepare crust, lightly spoon 2 cups flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife.

Combine 1/2 cup flour, ice water, and vinegar, stirring with a whisk until well blended to form a slurry.

Combine remaining 1 1/2 cups flour, powdered sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal.

Add slurry; toss with a fork until flour mixture is moist.

Divide dough in half.

Gently press each half into a 4-inch circle on 2 sheets of overlapping heavy-duty plastic wrap; cover with 2 additional sheets of overlapping plastic wrap.

Roll 1 dough half, still covered, into a 12-inch circle.

Roll other dough half, still covered, into an 11-inch circle.

Chill dough 10 minutes or until plastic wrap can be easily removed.

To prepare filling, combine the apples and lemon juice in a large bowl.

Combine 2/3 cup sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and 1/8 teaspoon salt in a small bowl.

Sprinkle sugar mixture over apples; toss well to coat.

Remove top 2 sheets of plastic wrap from 12-inch dough circle; fit dough, plastic wrap side up, into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate coated with cooking spray, allowing dough to extend over edge.

Remove remaining plastic wrap.

Spoon filling into dough; brush edges of dough lightly with water.

Remove top 2 sheets of plastic wrap from 11-inch dough circle; place, plastic wrap side up, overfilling.

Remove remaining plastic wrap.

Press edges of dough together.

Fold edges under, and flute.

Cut 4 (1-inch) slits into top of pastry using a sharp knife.

Brush top and edges of pie with egg white; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.

Place pie on a baking sheet; bake at 450° for 15 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 350° (do not remove pie from oven), and bake an additional 40 minutes or until golden.
