Apple pie

From the kitchen of Kristine Heinrichs of Browerville, Minnesota


8 cups sliced apples (6 to 8 apples)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
1/4 cup flour 
1/4 cup honey or sugar 
1/4 cup brown sugar 
1 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt 
Pie crust (makes 2 crusts)
2 cups flour
2/3 cup shortening 
1/2 teaspoon salt 

For the pie: Placed sliced and peeled apples in a large bowl, add vanilla, flour, honey or sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Stir well.

For the crust: Place flour, shortening and salt in stand mixer and mix. Add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until a ball of dough forms. Remove dough and place on floured surface, cut dough in half so there are two sections. Roll one section to fit a 9-inch pie pan. Place that section in the pie pan. Pour the apple mixture into the pie pan on top of shell. Roll out other pie crust section into circle, and cut strips to make a lattice top or place whole crust on top and cut slits. Brush the crust with milk and place tin foil over the edges of the crust to prevent burning. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350 degrees and bake for 40-50 minutes.
