We all know how Dean Winchester feels about pie:
Did you know that Jane Austen felt the same way?
I hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving Day and enjoy yourself some pie!
And in case you need it, here is a fantastic pie recipe from my sister blog MysteriousEats.wordpress.com
- 2 Cups of All-Purpose flour
- 1 Teaspoon of Salt
- 3/4 Cup of Shortening
- Ice Water
- 1/2 Cup – 1 Cup of All-Purpose Flour
- 6-7 Granny Smith Apples peeled, and cut into slices
- 1 Cup of White Sugar
- 1 Cup of Brown Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon
- 2 Tablespoons of Butter
- In a mixing bowl, mix up the shortening and flour. Add in water, a tablespoon at a time until dough is more malleable. If you add too much and it is too liquid-y, then just add a bit more flour to firm it up.
- Put dough aside.
- When cutting up the apples, make sure to remove the hard pieces where the seed grows along with any spots or blemishes.
- Preheat the oven to 375°
- Combine the apples, with the brown and white sugar.
- Add the flour and cinnamon, mixing them all together.
- Divid the dough in half and roll into two balls.
- Take a cutting board and put a little flour on the surface, rubbing it. Rub flour on your rolling pin as well.
- Place the dough down and roll it into a large circle.
- Place the dough in a cake pan.
- Lay the apples down on the dough in the pan.
- Put the two tablespoons of butter on top.
- Repeat step 8.
- Place the second ball of dough down and roll it out into a large circle.
- Place it on top, to be the top of your pie.
- Cut a small incision on the top of the pie to allow steam out.
- Add a dash of cinnamon and sugar on top.
- Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
