“My daughter used this recipe to submit a pie in the baked goods department of our local county fair. She not only received a blue ribbon for this pie she also won the all around grand champion at the fair.” - by Sharon Anderson
Original recipe yields 1 - 9 inch pie
- In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water a tablespoon at a time until mixture forms a ball. Divide dough in half and shape into balls. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Roll one ball out to fit a 9 inch pie plate. Place bottom crust in pie plate. Roll out top crust and set aside.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C.)
- In a large bowl, combine sliced apples, sugar, 1 tablespoon flour and cinnamon. Mix well and pour into pie shell. Dot with remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Cover with top crust, seal edges, and cut away excess dough. Make several small slits in the top to allow steam to escape.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until golden brown.

"I just made this pie and it came out great I do suggest using 2 tablespoons of flour to thicken the filing. It really tastes yummy!..." See more"
"This pie is WONDERFUL! The crust, in particular, was a dream come true! I have tried so many recipes for crust and my Irish mother would always tell me, "Butter, flour, salt and water is all you ne..." See moreed," but I wouldn't listen. Mom knows best! The filling is great, too as it doesn't have too much spice to it (some apple pie recipes are drowned in cinnamon and nutmeg and you can't taste the apples). Since I go to the orchard to pick mine, I want to be able to taste them (that's the only thing I do differently with this recipe-- I don't use Granny Smith). Thanks so much for submitting this!"
