Meet the Cook: Pies are the dessert I like best to prepare. This one's the favorite for family get-togethers, and it has been awarded blue ribbons at a couple of local fairs. My husband's a cattleman. We're the parents of six and grandparents of nine. -Theresa Brazil, Petaluma, California

Ingredients

  • 6 cups sliced peeled Golden Delicious apples
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons apple juice, divided
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • CRUST:
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter
  • 6 to 8 tablespoons ice water

Directions

In a large saucepan, combine apples, 3/4 cup apple juice, sugar, cinnamon and apple pie spice; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Combine cornstarch and remaining apple juice; add to saucepan. Return to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 1 minute more or until thickened. Remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla. Cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally.
For crust, combine flour and salt; cut in the butter until mixture is crumbly. Gradually add water, 1 tablespoon at a time; tossing with a fork until dough can be formed into a ball. Divide in half, making one half slightly larger. On a lightly floured surface, roll out larger portion.
Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom pastry; trim even with edge of plate. Add filling. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in top.
Bake at 400° for 40-45 minutes or until crust is golden brown and apples are tender. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"Excellent apple mixture. I'm not great at making pastry but the inside of the pie turned out awesome. Will make this again. I used another recipe for the crust but used in ingredients for the pie."

"This crust recipe is very off. The fat in it should be about half that or less. I am experienced and fixed it some, but we had to way overwork the dough to fix it.

the filling was fine."

"Made this for the fourth time today. It was perfect! The only change I made was I sprinkled a cinnamon-sugar blend on top before baking. This is one of my "go to" recipes!"

"I have never made a pie before and this was so incredibly easy and delicious! I needed to use up a bag of apples I had that's when I came across your recipe! I am going to make this for my Thanksgiving this year! Its going to be a new fall tradition! I cheated on the crust because I was in a bit of a time crunch so I used store bought. I don't know what type of apples I used but they tasted like candy! Wonderful job!"
