Tante's Apple Pie Recipe
- 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons white sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup butter
- ¼ cup lard
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 8 apples - peeled, cored and cut into thin wedges
- ½ cup white sugar
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 ½ tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C.)
step 2: In a large bowl, combine flour, 2 teaspoons white sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in 1/4 cup butter and lard until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Blend egg yolk and milk, add to flour mixture and stir until mixture forms a ball. Pat onto the bottom and about 1 inch up the sides of an 8x12 inch baking pan. Arrange apple wedges in rows lengthwise on top of dough. Cover with streusel.
step 3: To make the streusel: In a medium bowl, combine 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon and 1 1/2 tablespoon flour. Cut in butter and blend into coarse meal.
step 4: Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes. Cover with foil the last 25 minutes to prevent over browning.
