Directions:
Sift 2 cups flour and salt into mixing bowl. Cut in shortening with pastry blender until mixture resembles corn meal. Sprinkle water evenly over mixture. Stir with fork until all flour is moistened. Gather mixture together; shape into ball. Divide in half. Roll out half the pastry on floured board; cut out a 12" circle; fit into 9" pie plate. Combine sugar, 2 tbsp flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in bowl. Arrange half the apples in pastry-lined pie plate. Sprinkle with half the sugar mixture. Repeat with remaining apples and sugar mixture. Dot top with butter or margarine. Roll out remaining pastry; cut 12" circle; cut decorative vents to allow steam to escape during baking. Place over filling; press edges together; form standing rim; flute edge. For a sparkly top, brush top lightly with milk, sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 425 for 40 to 45 minutes.
