Truly, the best apple pie we have ever eaten! Our home-grown Arkansas Black apples became an apple pie. The pie was “full of life” and flavor. We used about 6 cups of peeled and cut apples, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon Ceylon cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and a pinch of cloves baked at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes and 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. The crust is 1/2 cup of organic grass fed butter, 1 1/2 cups organic flour, and about 1/2 cup ice-cold water, salt and sugar to taste. We prefer to have a thinner crust and more pie filling. I use a pastry cutter in a stainless steel bowl to cut the butter into the flour. I add the water and turn out on to a floured surfaced and fold the mixture over several times to make pastry layers. Split into halves and roll out with floured rolling pin. If dough is sticky chill it in the refrigerator. Bake in 8-9 inch greased pie pan.
