Homemade Apple Pie

"Good apple pies are a considerable part of our domestic happiness" -Jane Austen. Tis true. There is no dessert more looked forward to than a good slice of homemade apple pie...just imagine, a flaky crust with a sweet apple filling melting together with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Heavenly, i know.

This was my first time making apple pie and thanks to this recipe, it certainly won't be the last.

For the crust:
1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1/4 cup ice cold water

For the filling:
6-7 medium apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon butter


For the crust:
In the bowl of a food processor, add flour and salt. Pulse a few times to combine. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Slowly add water, little amounts at a time (you do not want to add too much) and pulse until dough starts to come together. Do not over process the dough.

Once the dough starts to come together, remove from the food processor and gather it up into a ball. Divide the ball in half, and form each half into a thick disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate while you make the filling.

For the filling:
In a medium sized bowl, combine sugars, spices, and 2 tablespoons flour. Reserve 2-3 tablespoons of mixture in a seperate bowl.

Toss apples in mixture.

Take one disk of dough out from the fridge and roll it out onto a floured surface. Place in the pie pan.

Preheat oven 450°F. After 5 minutes of preheating, pre-bake the bottom pie crust for 2 minutes. 
Remove from the oven and arrange the apples on top of the crust.

Sprinkle 1 teaspoon flour over the apples, then sprinkle the reserved mixture. Dot with butter.

Remove the second half of dough from the fridge and roll it out. Place it over the apples. Seal/flute edges of the dough and slit steam vents. 

Bake for 10 minutes at 450°F, then rotate pie and bake 30-35 minutes at 350°F.
