Pie Crust:
2 cups flour
1tsp. salt
3/4 c. crisco
3 tbsp. ice water
(mix dry ingredients together and sprinkle ice water on top. With one hang gently combine until the dough is in pea-sized pieces)

For the apple pie filling you need:
5-6 Tart Peeled Apples (I use gala)
1 Cup Sugar
2 Tablespoons Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon

1. Mix pie crust together, separate into 2 equal parts, cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate.
2. Meanwhile, adjust an oven rack to the lowest position, place a rimmed baking sheet on the rack, and heat the oven to 500 degrees. Mix pie filling and set aside.
3. Roll out bottom crust with 1 inch hanging over side of pan, add filling, roll out top crust and fold both under to rest on the edge of the pie pan. Crimp edges to seal in juices and add a few slits in the top.
4. Cover crimped edges of the pie with foil and add a few thin slices of butter to top of crust
5. Place the pie on the heated baking sheet and lower the oven temperature to 425 degrees. Bake until the top crust is golden, about 25 minutes. Rotate the baking sheet, remove foil, reduce the oven temperature again to 375 degrees, and continue to bake until the juices are bubbling and the crust is deep golden brown, 30 to 35 minutes longer. Transfer the pie to a wire rack and cool to room temperature before serving.

Personal Notes:
This isn't really "award-winning" apple pie unless you count that it won best pie at a ward picnic in Arkansas =)
