Okay! I was so set on eating it that I forgot to take pictures till after I cut it... but it still looks and tastes good!
I did a lattice crust (my fist time!), oil crust, and I had a bit of dough left over, so I made some cutouts with cookie cutters. 
Notice how I made some LARGE slices! It's the best way to eat apple pie.
With the leftover liquids after I had cooked the apples, I added a mixture of 4 tablespoons water to 3 tablespoons corn starch to make a thick sauce.
Pie crust (for two crusts):
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • a bit more than 1/2 cup milk
Apple filling:
  • 8 apples
  • squeeze of fresh lemon juice
  • Enough water to just cover the bottom of the pot
  • 1/2 cup raw or brown sugar
  • shake of cinnamon and nutmeg 

Pie crust:
Mix the flour and salt together in a large bowl. Add oil and milk, and blend well. Refrigerate.
Apple filling:
Wash, peel, and slice the apples. To prevent them from getting brown and to keep their fresh flavor, squeeze on some lemon juice. Put the apples, water, sugar, and spices in the pot and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, till apples are soft. Remove from heat.
Assembly of the pie:
Preheat the oven to 175 celsius. Take the pie crust out of the fridge and roll out to desired size. Place in pie pan. If wished, you could do a decorative crust at this point. Pour in apples, and, if desired, you could make a sauce for the pie (see above). Bake for 30 minutes, or until golden. Enjoy!
Question of the week:

    I have loved doing crafts, cooking, and writing all my life. Ever since I was a little girl, I have had great joy helping make cookies (though I probably was more of a bother than a help!) and I loved putting my heart into drawings that only I could understand.  That is, until I would run off and do something else! Though I do not know you, and probably never will, I hope with all my heart that you will grow in your joy of creating items with your hands and heart.
