You can’t beat my mom’s yummy apple pie. Pretty as a picture, the golden crust is flaky and the filling has just the right amount of spices. —Anne Halfhill, Worthing, Ohio

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the apples, sugar, water, tapioca, cinnamon and nutmeg; toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide in half, making one half slightly larger.

  4. Trim, seal and flute edges. Brush with milk; sprinkle with sugar. Cover edges loosely with foil.
  5. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 40-50 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"5 star. Great tasting and simple to make. The only change I made was to use 1/4 cup of flour mixed in with the apples instead of tapioca, I didn't have tapioca. Best apple pie ever!"
