Deluxe Apple Pie Bake Recipe
- 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ⅓ cup shortening
- 6 tablespoons cold water
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- ¾ cup white sugar
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ⅛ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 5 apples - peeled, cored and chopped
- ¾ cup raisins
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
- 1 cup sifted confectioners' sugar
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons milk
step 1: To Make Crust: In a large bowl, stir together 1 1/4 cup flour and salt. Cut in shortening until coarse crumbs form. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of water at a time to dough until it is moist enough to form into a ball. On a lightly floured surface, use hands to slightly flatten dough. Roll dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter.
step 2: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a 9 inch deep dish pie pan with a piece of aluminum foil; it should cover bottom and sides of pan. Lightly flour the foil. Press the dough into the pan.
step 3: To Make Filling: In a large bowl, stir together 2 tablespoons flour, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Gently toss apples, raisins and walnuts with cinnamon mixture until coated. Fill the crust with the apple mixture.
step 4: Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Remove from oven and let cool.
step 5: To Make Icing: In a small bowl, mix together confectioners' sugar, vanilla and milk. Drizzle over top of cooled pie.
