For a 9" Double Crust:
2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
2/3 c. shortening
1/3 c. ice water

For apple filling:
6 c. thinly sliced Granny Smith apples
3/4 c. white sugar
2 T. all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
4 T. butter

Sift flour and salt; cut in shortening until mixture is in the size of peas. Add water gradually, mixing and pressing ingredients together with a fork until moist enough to hold together. Form into 2 balls.
Lightly flour a surface and roll out each ball until it overlaps the pie plate. Place one in the pie plate and prick the bottom in several places with a fork.
Mix the apples, sugar, flour and cinnamon together and put in the pie. Cut the butter pieces and place throughout the top of the apple mixture. Lay the remaining pie crust over the filling and pinch the crusts together. Flute the edges with your fingers. Prick the top of the pie crust too. (Can also make a lattice top crust, by cutting crust into 3/4" to 1" strips and weaving them on top.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until golden brown. If edge start to get dark, cover with foil and continue to bake.

Personal Notes:
Mom tried to teach me to make apple pies. I got so frustrated because every time I went to pick up the crust it would fall apart. I got so angry, I threw the dough against the wall vowing "I would never try and make another pie". As we all know, no one could make pie like her!
