Items used in this apple pie recipe:

Apple Pie Pastry
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour (300g)
1 teaspoon salt (5mL)
1 teaspoon sugar (5mL)
1 cup of cold butter (240g)
1/4-1/2 cup cold water (60mL-120mL)

Apple Pie Filling
3 lbs apples, sliced, cored and peeled
2 tablespoons lemon juice (30mL)
1 teaspoon cinnamon (5mL)
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup granulated sugar (50g)

Egg Wash
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon heavy cream (15mL)

Coarse sanding sugar for decoration

To make the pastry, combine and mix the flour, sugar and salt in a food processor. Add the butter and use the "pulse" button to combine. You will be looking for a coarse texture, with small pieces of butter. Add the cold water and continue to pulse until the dough combines. If it is dry, add more water a tablespoon at a time. Divide the dough in half and wrap in plastic wrap. Cool in fridge for 1 hour, or overnight.

When dough is chilled, roll out on a floured surface until 1/4"-1/8" thick. Place into pie pan. Set into fridge if desired.

To make the filling, combine the apples, cinnamon, salt, sugar, nutmeg and lemon juice and mix to coat apples. Fill pie shell, piling up in the middle. Place in fridge again to keep cool.

Roll out second disc of dough to the same thickness and place over top of apples. Be sure to vent the crust by pricking it with a fork or knife. Mix together the egg wash and brush onto the pastry. Sprinkle with sanding sugar if desired.

Bake in preheated oven at 425F for 25 minutes. Lower temperature to 375F and continue to bake for 60-70 more minutes.

Allow to cool for 2-3 hours before slicing.
