Nutrition Information (per serving)
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ tsp sea salt
⅓ cup cane sugar
½ cup cold unsalted butter
12 Tbsp ice cold water
4 Red Delicious apples, peeled and thinly sliced
4 Granny Smith apples, peeled and thinly sliced
½ cup cane sugar
1½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 egg white, lightly beaten
- Preheat oven to 350F.
- Place flour in a medium bowl. Add salt and sugar and mix well. Add butter and cut into flour, using a pastry cutter, until butter is the size of small peas. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing gently after each addition. Dough will begin to form a ball when enough water has been added. Gather dough with dry hands and form into a ball. Let rest for 5 minutes.
- Split dough in half and roll out two circles to fit 10-inch pie pan. Line bottom and sides of pie pan with one circle of dough. Evenly spread thinly sliced apples over the dough.
- In a small bowl mix together cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle over the top of the apples.
- Place the other circle of dough over the top of the pie and pinch edges together to make crust. Cut 5 slits in the center of the pie. Brush crust with egg whites. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until crust is golden.
