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
- 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
Mix the flour and salt together in a large bowl. Add oil and milk, and blend well. Refrigerate.
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!
