4-hour 30-Minute recipe Serves 10


Prep: 40 mins | Cook: 1 hour 20 mins
  • 1

    Make the Pastry: Combine 2 1/2 cups flour, 2 tbsp sugar and salt in a food processor. With motor running, drop 1/2 cup cold butter and shortening cubes through feed tube until coarse crumbs form. Gradually add ice-cold water through the tube until dough comes together. Dough shouldn't be sticky. Divide dough in half. Form each half into a disc. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour or overnight.

    Roll one disc, using a floured rolling pin on a floured surface, into a 12-in wide circle. Roll from centre to (but not over) the edge. Keep edges even. Loosely roll up around rolling pin, then unroll over a 9 1/2-in deep-dish pie plate. Pat dough over bottom and up sides of plate, leaving a 1/2-in overhang. Don't prick with a fork. Refrigerate until ready to use.

  • 3

    Position rack in lowest position in oven, then preheat to 425°F.

  • 4

    Make the Filling: Peel and core apples. Slice into 1/2-in wedges. (There should be about 10 cups total.) Place in a large bowl. Sprinkle with lemon juice, then spices and remaining 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup flour. Toss to coat. Mound in pastry shell. Scatter remaining 2 tbsp cold butter cubes overtop.

  • 5

    Make the Lattice Topping: Roll out second pastry disc into a 13-in wide circle. Cut into twelve 3/4-in strips. Lay 6 pastry strips vertically across pie. Fold back every other strip, then lay a new strip horizontally. Straighten folded strips back across pie. Fold back alternate strips, then place a new strip horizontally above the first one. Repeat until pie is completely covered. Fold overhanging pastry over lattice strips to seal, and twist edges inside the pan.

  • 6

    Brush lattice and overhang with beaten egg white. Sprinkle with coarse sugar. Place pie on a baking sheet.

  • 7

    Bake on bottom rack 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350°F. Continue baking until crust is golden and apples are tender, about 1 hour and 10 minutes. Cool on a rack about 1 hour 30 minutes before serving.
