2 tbsp30 mL butter

Directions

  1 Pie Crust: Blend flour and salt in a medium bowl. Cut chilled shortening into ½” (1 cm) cubes. Cut into flour mixture, using a pastry blender or 2 knives, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs with some small pea-sized pieces remaining. Sprinkle half the maximum recommended water over flour mixture. Using a fork, stir and draw flour from bottom of bowl to the top, distributing moisture evenly into flour. Press chunks down to bottom of bowl with fork. Add more water by the tablespoonful (15 mL), until dough is moist enough to hold together when pressed together. Flatten dough into ½” (1 cm) disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill for 30 minutes or up to 2 days for ease in rolling.

  2 Preheat oven to 425°F (210°C)

  3 Roll dough on a lightly floured work surface to a circle 2” (5 cm) wider than pie plate. Transfer dough to a 9” (23 cm) pie plate. Trim overhand and flute edges.

  4 Filling: Beat egg in a large bowl. Stir in evaporated milk, sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Add apples and combine. Pour apple mixture into unbaked pie shell. Place on baking sheet for easy carrying and to prevent any spills.

  5 Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F (180°C) and continue baking for 30 minutes.

  6 Topping: Combine sugar, flour and salt in a medium bowl. Add butter and mix until mixture is crumbly. Spoon over partially baked pie. Continue baking for 15 to 20 minutes, or until apples are tender. Cool on wire cooling rack.

Tip(s)

Pie can be prepared several hours ahead and served at room temperature or refrigerated for up to two days. For best flavour, warm before serving.
