Venango County Recipe of the Day: Apple Pie – Sponsored by Clarion Federal Credit Union.

This apple pie is so tasty, especially when topped with a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream!


2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup shortening
4 to 5 tablespoons cold water

7 to 8 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons butter
1 large egg yolk
1 tablespoon water


-In a large bowl, mix flour and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add cold water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight.

-Preheat oven to 425°. For the filling, in a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg; add to apples and toss to coat.

-On a lightly floured surface, roll one half of the dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate.

-Trim even with rim. Add filling; dot with butter. Roll remaining dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle. Place over the filling. Trim, seal, and flute edge. Cut slits in top. Whisk egg yolk and water; brush over crust.

-Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven setting to 350°; bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly for 40-45 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
