Instructions
All-Butter Flaky Pie Crust
  1. Place flour, sugar and salt in the bowl of a food processor or large mixing bowl. Cut the cold butter into the flour mixture by pulsing the food processor or using a pastry blender, until the butter is the size of small peas.
  2. Add the ice water, one tablespoon at a time, over the flour mixture. Pulse or stir the mixture until large clumps form. When the dough begins to hold together, lay it on large piece of plastic wrap and use the wrap to for the dough into a ball. Flatten out the ball into a disc shape and cover completely with the plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before using.
Apple Pie
  1. Flour a your work surface and place the chilled dough on the flour. Dust the top with flour and roll out the dough into a large circle. Make sure you are moving and flipping over the dough so that it doesn’t stick to your surface.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. In a medium bowl, add all of the filling ingredients, except the butter, and stir until the apples are evenly coated. Use your spoon to roughly chop the apples.
  4. Place the filling in the center of the rolled out dough, leaving a 2-3 inch border. Fold the border up and around the filling, pleating it together. Leave a circular opening in the center. Dot the filling with butter. Brush the top of the dough with the beaten egg and sprinkle with the sparkling sugar.
  5. Transfer the rustic pie to a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes until the crust is a deep golden brown and the filling is bubbling. If the crust is browning too fast, tent the pie with foil for the remaining cooking time.
