I actually tried this and it was probably the best crust I've made - sometimes simple is better - I actually did 1/2 c shortening and 1/2 c butter cut into cubes - hopefully it will be as delish as the original recipe Allrecipes Com Another, Apples Pies, Beef Pots Pies, Pie Crusts, Crusts Allrecipes Com, Simple Pies, Pie Crust Recipes, Allrecipes Com Easy, Pies Crusts Recipes
Apple Pie: 5-6 medium/large Granny Smith apples (about 2½ lbs.), peeled, cored and sliced 1/3 cup granulated sugar 3 tbsp. brown sugar 1 tbsp. all-purpose flour ½ tsp. ground cinnamon ¼ tsp. grated nutmeg 1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice 2 tbsp. cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces 1 large egg beaten with 1 tablespoon cold water
Make this pretty lattice top by twisting 3/4-inch pastry strips and lining them up across pie. Place other strips diagonally, twisting them as you weave. Lower crust is folded over pastry strips and crimped to guard juice.
