    1 c. Hy-Vee vegetable shortening
    6 to 8 tbsp. ice water
    Apple Filling
    6 Pink Lady apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
    ¾ c. Hy-Vee granulated sugar
    2 tbsp. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour

    Things To Grab

    • Large bowl
    • Pastry blender
    • Rolling pin
    • Medium bowl


    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. For pie crust, stir together flour and salt in a large bowl. Cut in shortening using a pastry blender until pieces are pea-sized. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon ice water over flour mixture, gently toss with a fork. Repeat with additional ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until all of flour mixture is moistened. Gather dough into a ball. Divide dough half; shape each portion into a ball.

    2. Slightly flatten 1 pastry ball on a lightly floured surface. Roll from the center to the edge to create a 12-inch circle. Fold pastry into quarters; unfold in a 9-inch round pie plate. Ease pastry into pie plate; do not stretch. Trim pastry to within 1/2-inch of pie plate edge.

    3. For filling, combine apple slices, sugar, flour, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl; toss to coat evenly. Transfer apple pie filling to the pastry-lined pie plate.

    4. Roll out remaining dough ball on a lightly floured surface to a 1/8-inch-thick rectangle. Cut into strips. Weave strips over apples. Tuck ends of strips under bottom crust edge and crimp edges to seal. Lightly brush pastry top with beaten egg; sprinkle with coarse sugar.

    5. Bake for 20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees and bake for 30 more minutes or until filling starts to bubble in center. Cool on a wire rack.
