4 sweet apples-peeled, cored, and sliced

3/4 c. sugar
3 T. corn starch
2 oz "red hots" ( cinnamon imperials)
2 pie crusts (top/bottom)

Pie Crust:

4 c. flour
1 large egg
1 T. sugar
1 t. salt
1 T. vinegar
1 3/4 c. shortening (I like Crisco)

For crust combine dry ingredients. Cut in shortening until crumbly.
Mix beaten egg, vinegar and water. Combine both mixtures and divide into 2 balls.Chill for 1/2 hour. Roll crust on a lightly floured surface.
Pre-bake one pie shell for 15 minutes at 425.
Reduce oven to 350.
Combine filling ingredients and place in cooled pie crust. Place top crust over and using a fork, pierce top to vent. Flute edges together well! Place on cookie sheet and bake for 1 hour.
