Apple Pie

Local Ingredients:
PA Pastry Flour (from Fair Foods in Reading Terminal Market)
Grey Horse Farm Eggs (from Sue's Produce)
Fahnestock, North Star, and Beechwood Apples (from Rittenhouse Farmer's Market)

D's mom might kill her if she reveals the secret pie crust recipe. Hint: involves baking soda and vinegar which makes it fun to make. She uses egg, but a vegan pie crust recipe would also be yummy for this apple pie.

Step 1: Make Pie Crust of your choice
Step 2: Peel and cut up tons of local apples (we used many varieties, but Stayman Winesaps are always good), and soak in water with fresh lemon juice to prevent browning as you cut up the rest of the apples.
Step 3: Drain and mix with 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon and a pinch of salt
Step 4: Roll out 2 pie crusts; place one in pie plate, fill with apples and dot with butter. Place second pie crust on top and flute edges. Puncture top crust with fork tines to create steam holes. Sprinkle with more cinnamon
Step 5: Place in 450* oven for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350* and bake 45-60 min.
Step 6: Enjoy with local ice cream or cheese!
