iTwixie's Cooking!
June 17, 2009

Here is the recipe for a yummy apple pie – made from scratch! Some iTwixie girls made it for their dad on Father’s Day. They even made the crust!

Here are the ingredients:


2 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp sea salt

1 egg

1/2 juice of a lemon

1 tsp sugar

6 tsp ice water

2 sticks of butter, frozen


And, here’s what to do:

Mix the dry ingredents. Mix wet ingredients. Add wet ingredients 1 Tsp at a time until the dough will stick together. Then cut the butter into little pea-sized cubes and cut into the dough until it all looks like little pea balls of dough/butter. Break in 2 balls. Roll out one for the bottom crust.

Now, time for the filling:

Combine sliced apples, 1/2 juice of lemon, 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/3 tsp all spice into a bowl. 1 Tsp flour. Cover the apples well.

Pour into pie pan with crust on the bottom.

Roll out 2nd dough ball for the top crust. Put the top crust on the pie and pinch the sides to “seal” the pie. Or cut the dough into strips for a “basket weave” look.

Bake at 450 degrees for 45 minutes.
