Janice Kinder


3 cups flour
1 cup shortening
1 egg
5 TB water
1 TB vinegar


6 apples, peeled and sliced
3/4 to 1 cup of sugar
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
dot with butter


1 cup powdered sugar

Mix together flour and shortening. Beat egg and add water and vinegar. Combine with flour mixture and stir until mixed, like pie dough. Let all this stand for 20 minutes. Divide dough into two balls. Roll out into rectangular shape in a 15x10 cookie sheet with a slight side. Mix apples, sugar and cinnamon and put on top of crust and dot with butter. Roll out other 1/2 of dough over the apple filling. Cut slits in top of crust. Bake at 400 for 25 minutes. While the pie is still warm, mix powdered sugar and enough milk to make it slightly thin and ice the top of pie. Sometimes I use more icing than it calls for.
