Okay, the first thing I noticed in your list of ingredients is the lack of egg yolks in the pie filling. It is assumed you are using 4 yolks in the filling? T.

Well spotted Terrill – I’ve updated the ingredients list to include the egg yolks. Thanks

Hi, it looks delicious, could you please tell me when do you add the cornstarch? Thank you!

Chris July 26, 2009

Hi Marcela
The cornstarch goes in the same time as the water and the sugar for the lemon mix – Grandmom Price just forgets to mention it. Have a look at Nanna Ruth’s Lemon Meringue Pie – she explains in more detail,but uses a solightly different method. Enjoy

Grandmom Price shows how to make a pie crust and bake an Apple Pie

Directions for pie crust
Mix the flour salt and shortening using a pastry cutter, when mixed put in freezer to chill.  When chilled remove from freezer, make a well in the centre of the mixture and add iced water.  Stir until the pastry makes ball.  Roll out half mixture at a time to make thin crust.

Directions for Filling
Partially peel and chop apples.  Sprinkle over the sugar, starch, nutmeg and lemon juice.  Mix and then spread evenly over pastry base dotting with butter.

Cover with upper crust, trimming pastry to leave a one inch overhang. Create slits in the pastry to enable the steam to escape and brush with sugar and milk mixture.  Before placing in oven put a foil ring over the pie to protect the edges from burning.  Cook for 45mins at 400° F, remove foil ring 15mins before cooking is finished.

    Serves 4

  • 6 large apples, partially peeled
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp corn starch 
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tbsp butter
  •  

  • For the pastry
  • 2 Cups flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup of Crisco shortening (for flakier crust)
  • half a cup ice water
  • 1 tsp sugar (For brushing)
  • 1 tbs milk (For brushing)
