How To Make The Perfect Pie

Instructions Prepare the crust:  In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, and sugar. Add the cold butter cubes to the flour mixture. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some pea-sized pieces of butter remaining.

Prepare the Filling: Add the sugar mixture to the apples and toss until evenly coated. Let the filling sit for about 15-20 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

Roll out the Dough: On a lightly floured surface, roll out one disc of dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Transfer it to a 9-inch pie dish, gently pressing it into the bottom and sides.

Assemble the Pie: Roll out the second disc of dough into a circle large enough to cover the pie. Place the dough over the filling. Trim any excess dough, leaving about a 1-inch overhang.

Bake the Pie: Place the pie on a baking sheet to catch any drips and bake in the preheated oven for 45-55 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.

Serve and Enjoy: Serve the pie warm or at room temperature, optionally with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
