20320Can you believe that it is Thanksgiving time already? Our thoughts turn to traditions and holiday food favorites, and sometimes we just need to spice up the old with a little bit of new—so why not try out a new recipe? Once your turkey is roasted to perfection, it’s time to turn your sights to a traditional dessert favorite: the homemade apple pie. True, you can find a great pre-baked pie at any local bakery, but the best pies come from the heart. Whether an amateur pie-maker or a pie connoisseur, here is a time-tested recipe (named for our family’s top executive chef!) to make sure your pie is the juiciest, sweetest treat on your dessert table.


For Crust:

Pre-heat oven to 4000. Combine 2 cups flour, 1 tsp. salt and 2/3 cup shortening and mix with a fork until crumbly. Add 5 tbsp. water and mix well, adding more water if too dry. Take half of the pastry dough and roll flat with a rolling pin. Coat 9” pie plate with touch of flour and line with pastry.


For Pie Mixture:

Peel, core and thinly slice 8 Granny Smith apples. Place apples in bowl and mix in 1 cup sugar, 2 tbsp. flour, 1 tsp. cinnamon and 2 tbsp. melted butter. Fill pastry-lined pie plate with apple mixture.


For Top Crust:

Take remaining pastry dough and roll flat. Place dough on top of apple pie mix. Crimp along edges of plate to create scalloped edges. Use a knife to cut slits into top of pastry for steam to escape. Bake in oven for 50 minutes or until crust becomes brown. Let cool before serving.


You can serve it warm, a la mode or chilled....but don’t forget the whipped topping! Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at Whitsons!
