4 cup Flour
1 cup Shortening

12 Apples (2-3 Granny smith, rest golden delicious)
1 1/2 Cup Sugar
3 Tbsp Flour
3 Tbsp Cinnamon
Sprinkle of Nutmeg
1/2 cup Rasins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Sift flour and salt into bowl. Cut in shortening. Beat egg yolks, add water and lemon extract. Stir egg mixture into flour mixture. Roll out half of the dough to fit cookie sheet. Fill with apples. In a bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg for the filling. Dust the apples with the filling mixture then sprinkle with raisins. Cover with second half of dough, sealing edges well. Bake for 35 minutes.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
My grandma always made this for holidays. There was always a major controversy over whether or not this recipe should have raisins in it. Some people hated raisins, while my grandma always maintained that it should have raisins because they're in the recipes. Personally I am pro-raisin and anyone who is anti-raisin is just a picky eater.
