The Apple Pie of My Eye


This is one of those recipes that I've got memorized thanks to making it with my mom a zillion times growing up, which she originally learned from her mom (and many versions ago, from Pillsbury ). The crust recipe is a gift from me to you care of Carla Hall (the Chew). I made an apple pie last week just for fun (also to celebrate Boss Appreciation Day, and also because I had a plethora of apples from Washington Square CSA) so I figured I should share the recipe. It's a hand-me-down that I'm very grateful for!

What you will need

2 cups All Purpose flour, sifted, plus more for dusting

8 ounces (two sticks) unsalted butter, chilled and cubed into 1/2 inch pieces

1 tablespoon sugar (sometimes I use honey or agave)

1 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup water

6 cups apples, peeled and sliced (I like to use mostly granny smith because I looooove the tartness, but go ahead and blend whatever apples you like!)

1/2 - 2/3 cups sugar (adjust to your taste)

2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

pinches salt

2 tablespoons all purpose flour, divided

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/4 cup whole milk
