Apple Pie

I was in charge of desserts this year for Thanksgiving-- but I have never made an apple pie before. I knew apple pie is the star of Thanksgiving so I couldn't mess it up. My first attempt was not the best so on Thanksgiving day I scrambled to fix another one. (Note: always have something under the pie pan to catch drippings- I learned the hard way as my oven caught on fire). I was very pleased with my second attempt and would recommend the recipe to everyone!

Apple Pie (from Some Kitchen Stories)

-1 and 1/4 Cups of all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
-6 TBsp of unsalted butter, room temperature
-1/3 Cup of packed light-brown sugar
-3/4 tsp of salt
-2 pre-made 9 inch pie crusts, thawed
-2 TBsp of fresh lemon juice
-3.5 pounds of ripe Granny Smith apples (about 6 large apples)
-1 Cup of granulated sugar
-3/4 Cup of chopped walnuts

1. Preheat your oven to 375° F.
2. Lightly grease a 9-inch pie tin.
3. Take a medium bowl. Combine 1 cup of flour, butter, brown sugar, and ¼ teaspoon salt to make the crumb topping. Work with fingers until clumps form, then put in freezer.
4. On a lightly floured surface, or wax paper, roll the 2 pre-made, thawed pie crusts together to form a 14” circle. Place pie crust gently into pie tin, letting the extra 2” hang over the edge. Refrigerate.
5. Place lemon juice in a large bowl. Peel, core, and slice apples about 1/8” thick, placing them in the bowl as you go. Toss slices with lemon juice to keep them from turning brown.
6. Add granulated sugar, walnuts, remaining ¼ cup of flour, and remaining ½ teaspoon of salt and mix.
7. Spoon apple mixture into pie crust pressing the apples in firmly. Fold the overhanging dough over the pie filling and press the edges tightly around the pie.
8. Bake pie for 45 minutes and then remove from oven and add crumb topping. At this point, lightly wrap edges of pie with aluminum foil to avoid burning. Return pie to oven and bake for another 20 minutes. (Add another piece of aluminum foil over top of pie if top starts to brown too quickly.)
