Recipe Instructions

To make the crust: Whisk together the flour and salt, then work in the shortening until everything is well combined. Work in the butter until the mixture is unevenly crumbly. Add the water 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing as you sprinkle the water onto the flour. Knead the dough to bring it together, then pat it into a thick disk. Roll the disk on its edge and smooth out the edges. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for 30 minutes. To make the filling: Stir sliced apples into the brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Remove crust from refrigerator. Lay crust in the pan. Spoon filling into the crust. To make the topping: Combine sugar, flour, and butter. Spread streusel atop the filling. Place the pie in a brown paper grocery bag. Secure the bag closed with staples. Place pie in its bag on sheet pan. Bake pie for 1 hour. Remove pie from the bag and set it on a rack to cool.
