Apple pie

I can't remember where we where, but I was itching to try a new pie crust recipe I had found online. What could be better than trying it out by making an apple pie? The pie crust was a bit dry and crumbly - so I will not share that one here... Not all my tries are a success 😉. But I will share the pie crust recipe that always turns out great!
Here is a no-fail combination for a great apple pie (crust and filling)

Pie crust recipe:

2 cups Flour
1 tsp Salt
2/3 cup Butter
7 tbsp Cold Water

In medium sized bowl, add flour and butter.
With pastry cutter, cut butter into flour.
Add salt and water.
Mix until dough is formed.
Separate in two. 
Roll out and line bottom of pie plate and keep other for top
Preheat oven - Bake at 375 (Note: only if recipe calls for pre-cooked pie shells - otherwise don't cook yet!) 

Apple Pie filling:

6 to 8 apples – peeled and sliced
1 / 2 cup brown sugar
2 tbls flour
1 tsp cinnamon

Toss all ingredients together in bowl. Pour in prepared pie crust, put top crust on, cut a couple slits.  

Bake @ 375 for 1 hr

Apple pie - we were only missing the ice cream on top!
