Apple Pie

- submitted by Dahlia on 12-17-2010

Pie Crust (9") - 2
Apples - about 8 cups (6-8 apples peeled and sliced) 
     - For best results use 2-3 varieties of apples
Lemon Juice - 2 tblsp
Sugar - 1 cup
Corn Syrup - 2 tblsp
All Purpose Flour - 3 tblsp
Ground Cinnamon - 1 tsp
Ground Nutmeg - 1/4 tsp
Salt - 1 pinch
Turmeric Powder - a pinch
Butter - 2 tblsp
Egg - 1/2

1. Take the apple slices in a large mixing bowl.
2. Add the lemon juice, sugar, turmeric powder, salt, corn syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg to that and toss.
3. Add the flour and mix together.
4. Take one pie crust on a pie plate and fill it with the apple mixture.
5. Add small pieces of butter on top.
6. Use the second pie crust to cover the apples. Seal the edges and cut few slits on top for the steam to escape. (I have made a lattice top with the second pie crust.)
7. Brush the top crust with beaten egg to give a shiny finish.
8. Sprinkle some white sugar on top.
9. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 55 min - 1 hr until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.

         Hi Madhu, You may find it in some super markets in the freezer section. I'm not sure though. You can easily make it at home.

        Take 2 cups of maida and 1/2 tsp of salt. Mix in 3/4 cup of dalda with it. Add little water as needed and knead to form a soft dough. Let the dough rest in the refrigerator for 15 minutes so that it will be easier to roll out. Divide the dough into 2 and roll out each half like a big chappatti. Use one as the bottom layer and one for the top layer.
