1/2 c Crisco
3 tbsp COLD water

5 c sliced apples
1/2 c sugar
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon

Directions:
To prepare crust: mix flour and salt. Cut in Crisco until pea-sized chunks form. Sprinkle with water 1 tbsp at a time, tossing with a fork to form a ball. Roll out between layers of waxed paper. Flip into pie plate and form edges.

Preheat over to 400F. Combine apples, apricots, sugar and cinnamon. Allow to macerate while preparing topping.

For topping: measure flour and sugar into a bowl. Cut in cold butter. Fill pie crust with apple-apricot mixture and sprinkle topping over pie.

Bake at 400F for 35-40 minutes.
