I do! This one is really yummy and a little different from the norm.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup vegetable shortening, room temperature
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons cold water
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- Combine the flour and salt in mixing bowl. Cut room temperature shortening into flour until mixture is uniform and shortening resembles large peas. Beat egg, water, and vinegar together to blend. Pour all of the liquid evenly over flour mixture. Stir in with fork until all of the mixture is moistened. Divide dough in half and shape each into a ball. Flatten each into a 4-inch circle. Wrap and chill dough for 15 minutes for easier rolling.
- Dust rolling pin and work surface lightly with flour. Roll dough to a uniform thickness. Roll to a circle about 1-inch larger than upside down 8-inch pie plate. Carefully place one dough circle into pie plate and gently press into form of plate. Trim excess dough around the edge with the back of a knife.
- 1/2 cup sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1.5 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp nutmeg
- Dash salt
- 3 1/2 cups peeled, chopped cooking apples
- 1.5 cups chunky cinnamon applesauce
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons butter, chopped into small pieces
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- Dash salt
- 1 tablespoon butter, at room temperature
- ½ cup oatmeal
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Line a 9-inch pie pan with half of dough.
- Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Stir in apples, applesauce, and lemon juice. Spoon apple mixture into pie pan and dot with butter.
- Cut remaining crust into strips; arrange in a lattice design over top of pie. For crunch topping, combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Using a fork, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over top of crust.
- Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees F and continue to bake for about 45 minutes, or until crust and topping are golden brown.
