[Adam's] Apple Pie

I'm finally getting around to posting Adam's birthday dessert (the second one). Gotta love church cookbook recipes... this one is listed as Ty's Apple Pie and it was really good, even though (gasp!) I'm not a huge fan of apple pie. (Yes, I am American.)

[Adam's] Apple Pie

2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup shortening
4-5 Tbsp water

1/2 stick butter
1 cup sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla
1/8 cup flour
1/6 cup water
4 cups diced Jonathan apples
milk & sugar

Mix dry crust ingredients. Cut shortening in with pastry cutter until well mixed. Add water; continue to mix with pastry cutter or fork. Form into ball then roll on floured surface with rolling pin. Makes 1 double crust pie crust.

Bring butter, sugar, vanilla, flour and water to boil. Pour over diced apples; stir. Place in pie shell; cover with top crust. Brush with milk and sprinkle with sugar. Bake until golden brown at 350° for 1 hour.

Ok, so I cheated and used frozen pie crusts. I just don't have the knack for rolling them out, so I just don't even try - there are other things I'd much rather master. And since this was for my hubby, I used cookie cutters to cut out hearts and overlay them on the top pie crust before brushing with milk and sprinkling with sugar. It must have been good - I only had 1 piece and somehow the rest of it disappeared within a couple days.
