  • Eggs, gluten
  • Ingredients

    Pie Dough (1 - 9" pie crust)
    Water, boiling 1/3 cup.
    All Purpose Flour 2 1/4 cups.
    Baking Powder 1/2 tsp.
    Salt, table 1/2 tsp.
    Wesson Canola Oil 2/3 cup.
    Apple Pie Filling
    Peeled sliced apples 6 cups.
    Sugar, white 3/4 cup.
    Cinnamon 1/2 tsp.
    Lemon Juice 1 tbsp.
    Corn Starch 2 tbsp.
    Egg 1 .
    Sugar, white 2 tbsp.



    Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in a mixing bowl. Mix well.
    Pour Wesson Canola Oil over dry mixture.
    Measure out boiling water carefully into a measuring cup and pour over oil. Mix until a uniform dough is formed.
    Divide the dough into two pieces, one approximately 2/3 of the dough and one 1/3.
    Roll the 2/3 piece of dough between two pieces of parchment paper into a ~12 inch circle. Pieces of the dough can be cut and pressed into shape to help maintain a round shape.
    Lift the parchment paper and invert the dough into the pie pan, pressing into shape and leaving some overhang.

    Apple Pie Filling

    In a large bowl toss together all apple pie filling ingredients. Spread apple pie filling into the prepared bottom pie shell.

    Assembly Method
    Roll out the 1/3 dough ball into a 10" round between two pieces of parchment paper. Use the parchment to invert the dough onto the pie and crimp the two layers of dough together. Trim any excess dough with a knife. Beat the egg in a small bowl and brush the top of the pie crust. Sprinkle the top of the crust with sugar. Cut a vent hole in the top of the pie with the tip of a knife. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350F for 60-70 minutes until pie is golden brown and filling is bubbling. Let cool for 1 hour before serving.
    Cut the 10" round of dough into strips and create a lattice design on the top of the pie for an intricate look.
