Ingredients:  
Crust:
2 c. flour
1 t. salt
3/4 c. crisco
1/4 c. cold water
Filling:
7-9 apples
3/4 c. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. nutmeg
1 1/2 T. butter

Directions:
Directions:
Mix 1/3 c. of the flour and salt mixture with 1/4 c. ice water. Put in the refrigerator while slicing and peeling apples and while blending the flour and crisco with a pastry blender. Then mix together. Handle this as little as possible (this is the secret). When rolling out crust, take 1/2 at a time and roll out carefully turning once or twice. If size doesn't suit you DO NOT pick up and start over. The less handling the better - just patch the dough with water if you get a little tear. Place in pie pan and fill with the apples that have been peeled sliced and mixed with the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Dot with butter and roll out top crust placing it carefully on the pie. Crimp edges and make a few slits in the top. Bake @ 450 for 50 -60 minutes

Personal Notes:
Aunt Stella makes the best apple slices and we had these at a cousins coffee in 1976 (or else it was 1977)at her house. She also served Banket which I had never had except at holiday time and here it was the middle of September--as a young newly married woman, she was my idol!!
