Apple Pie
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Mix shortening, flour, and salt together with a fork or a pastry blender until very crumbly. Add as much water as needed to hold together, and mix lightly with a fork.
  3. Cut ball of dough in half. Roll each half gently on a floured surface to about an inch larger than a 9 inch pan.
  4. Fold carefully in half, lift over pie pan, and unfold. Press into pan. Dock dough by poking all over with a fork. 
  5. Pour filling into pie crust, making sure apples are evenly spaced. Cover with top crust and crimp the edges of dough together to form a seal.
  6. Cover edge of pie with aluminum foil to prevent burning. If desired brush top of pie with egg whites to make a browner crust. Place the pie pan on a sturdy cookie sheet so it will be easy to move in and out of the oven.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes until slightly golden but not brown.
  8. Set oven to 375 degrees F and continue cooking for 50 minutes.
  9. Let cool for about 2 hours at room temperature before refrigerating.

Makes about 10 servings.

    Can you use Almond Flower to cut the carbs a little?

      Hi Kathy, We would recommend using this recipe: https://swervesweet.com/recipes/gluten-free-pie-crust Hope this helps!

    I see you responded about the flour based crust being replaced with the gluten free one that ends up being 2 net carbs per serving. Do you know that THIS recipe is net carb wise if we use the gluten free crust instead of the flour based one?
