1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1 tablespoon cornstarch, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
Mix over, under, all around apples and let sit.
6 tbs shortening
6 tablespoons butter
This is what it looks like finally.
Cut in half. Preheat oven 450 degrees.
Roll out 9 ” circle. (I like my crust thin, so I make the circle bigger)
Put in pan by placing pan over rolled out dough, and flip over entire sheet into pan. Roll out second half.
Fill bottom half with apple mixture (pile high in middle and round down to top of crust) and dot with 1 tablespoon of butter.
Top (this one you need align with you pie and slowly roll over/flip onto it) and fold crusts.
If you top your Apple pie with cheese, omit 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg spices and add 1/2 teaspoon fennel instead.
