Double Crust Shortening Pie Dough

Double Crust Shortening Pie Dough
How to Freeze and Apple Pie Before Baking It: a step-by-step tutorial by Ken Haedrich, Dean of The Pie Academy - whether you're getting ready for Thanksgiving...or just looking to use up some of those extra fall apples, here's a take-it-to-the-bank pie making strategy you can use.
Yields: 0 servings
Number of ingredients: 5
  • 2 3/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup Crisco or other vegetable shortening
  • 1/2 cup (approximately) ice cold water
How to cook:
  1. Mix the flour, confectioners' sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the shortening, cutting it into smaller pieces with a butter knife.
  2. Using a pastry blender, cut the fat into the dry ingredients until the largest pieces of fat are no bigger than the size of green peas.
  3. Using a tablespoon measure, sprinkle about half of the water here and there over the mixture. Using a pastry fork or other large fork, stir and "fluff" the ingredients; don't use a firm, press-and-stir motion right at first. You're just trying to dampen everything at this point.
  4. Add the remaining water, a tablespoon or two at a time, tossing and fluffing after each one. When all the water has been added, you should be able to press a small portion of the dough between your fingers and have it hold together. But if it's still crumbly, mix in another TEASPOON or so of water.
  5. Turn the dough out of your bowl and gather it into a single mass. Divide in half, making one half slightly larger than the other. This larger one will be your pie shell.
  6. Shape each portion into a ball and place on separate sheets of plastic wrap. Flatten into disks about 3/4-inch thick and wrap in the plastic. Refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour before rolling on a floured surface. Makes enough for two 9-inch pie shells or one 9- to 9 1/2-inch double-crust pie.

Total time: 90 minutes
Cook time: 60 minutes
Prep time: 30 minutes
Yields: 10 servings
Cuisine: American
Number of ingredients: 9
  • 1 unbaked single crust pie dough
  • 1 to 3 tablespoons brown sugar*
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoons cinnamon (we like more)
  • 6-8 cups thinly sliced & peeled tart apples (deep-dish pie plates will need 8 cups)
  • 2/3 to 1 cup brown sugar*** (packed)
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • Serving Size: 1 slice

  • Carbohydrate: 66.7 g
  • Fiber: 5.4 g
  • Protein: 3.2 g
  • Cholesterol: 31 mg
How to cook:
  1. Roll out pie dough and fit into a 9-inch pie plate (regular pie plate or deep dish), fluting the edges. If baking right away, preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the sugar, flour & cinnamon with the sliced apples together and transfer to prepared pie crust, spreading with a slight mound in the center and pressing down to fill evenly.
  3. For the topping, add the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and butter (cut into pieces) to a bowl of a food processor. Process until the mixture starts to hold together, forming some large clumps (or use a pastry blender to cut in the butter by hand in a small bowl, but make sure to mix until large clumps form to get the big crumb topping).
  4. Break off pieces of the topping (it should be solid enough that it can't be "sprinkled" - press the crumbly topping in the bottom of the bowl together to form clumps) and evenly place over the top of the apples, covering them completely. Gently pat mixture down.
  5. To bake now:
  6. Place pie on a baking sheet and cover entire pie loosely with foil. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 35 to 40 minutes more until top is golden and apples are tender (I also usually remove the baking sheet so the crust browns well). Cool on a wire rack.
  7. To freeze and bake later:
  8. After topping apples with crumbs, wrap entire pie - plate and all - with heavy duty foil (or double thickness of foil). Label and freeze up to three months.
  9. When ready to bake, remove foil and place frozen pie on a cookie sheet. Use the same foil to cover the pie loosely with foil (just attach it loosely to the edges of the cookie sheet).
  10. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes, remove foil and bake for 40-50 minutes more until it's bubbling, the top is browned, and the apples are tender.
