1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup shortening
1/4 to 1/3 cup water

Make crust for two-crust pie,using plain or vegetable oil pie crust. Put bottom crust in pie plate. Pare core, and slice apples. Mix with sugar and flour and let stand 15 to 20 minutes. If apples are not tart enough, sprinkle with lemon juice. Fill pie, sprinkle with spices, and dot with butter. Cover with top crust and make several slashes in center to allow steam to escape. Bake until crust is brown and apples are tender. (50 to 60 minutes) Some varieties of apple --- Macintosh, for example --- need less time than others --- such as greenings.
