I had earlier mentioned about my baking spree and my target now are pies.I had earlier tried 2 to 3 recipes of apple pie from my collection but was not satisfied, as I had a pie dish I wanted to try again and was pleased with the result.

For the crust
Flour-2 cups
Butter/shortening-3/4 cup
Cold water-5 tbsp

For filling
Sugar-1/4 or 1/2 cup
Cinnamon powder-1 tsp
Salt-1/2 tsp
Butter-2 tbsp
Vinegar-1 tbsp

For crust
Blend in all the ingredients and see to it that butter is not fully melted but remains as small pieces
Wrap the dough in a plastic cover and keep in the fridge for 20 min or till the filling is ready

For filling
Peel and slice the apples
Soak in water with a tbsp of lime juice
Mix sugar ,flour,cinnamon,salt and vinegar
Drain water off the apples and mix them with the spices

Final stage
Divide the dough into two
Roll out 1/8th of inch thick
Wrap round the rolling pin and unwrap into the pie dish
Shape and fit the dough on the dish
Poke holes with fork in the bottom crust
Arrange all the apples on the bottom crust
Spread the butter on top
Roll out the remaing dough and place on the top
Using back of the knife do the finishing on the top
Bake at 150 C for 20-30 min or till the top turns slightly brown
Serve it hot/cold
