Apple Pie

Hello there, Miss Marisol here, from La Coruña, Spain. Hope you are all enjoying the last days of Summer!
As the Apple Season approaches, I´d like to share with you a very simple but yummy Apple Pie recipe. Miss Lopez herself has tasted it last July when she came to my house for lunch.  This recipe can also be made with frozen of refrigerated puff pastry or pie crust, only if you don´t feel like making the dough!
All right, let´s beguine cooking then!

250 g all-purpose flour 
6 g salt
155 g shortening
60 ml cold water
875 g thinly sliced peeled baking apples
30 ml lemon juice
200 g sugar 
30 g all-purpose flour
2 g ground cinnamon
0.8 g ground nutmeg
30 g butter or margarine
1 egg yolk
15 ml water


1. In a bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in shortening. Gradually add cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing lightly with a fork until dough forms a ball. Chill for 30 minutes. On a floured surface, roll half of dough into 10-in. circle. Place into a 9-in. pie pan.
2. In a bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg; add to apples and toss. Pour into crust; dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie; cut slits in top. Place over filling; seal and flute edges. Beat egg yolk and water; brush over pastry. Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F; bake 40-45 minutes more or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly.

All right then, it´s time to serve this delicious and classic dessert! You can serve it warm with a scoop of your favorite ice-cream or at room temperature.

Hope you like this Apple Pie as much as my family does! Enjoy and continue to Feelgood Womanhood with Miss Lopez and friends! Peace..
