This pie won Grand Champion in the Apple Pie category at the 1992 Okanogan County Fair. The pie looks traditional, but making your own filling gives it a different flair and great taste. —Dolores Scholz, Tonasket, Washington

Ingredients

  • 6 cups sliced peeled tart apples (about 5 to 6 medium)
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Dough for double-crust pie

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine apples, water and lemon juice; cook over medium-low heat just until apples are tender. Remove from the heat and cool (do not drain).
  2. Preheat oven to 450°. In a large bowl, combine sugars, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and salt; add apples and toss to coat. On a lightly floured surface, roll half of dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim even with rim. Add apple mixture. Roll remaining dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edge. Cut slits in top.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes. Reduce oven setting to 350°; bake until golden brown, 35-45 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
Editor's Note
Combine 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1/2 tsp. salt; cut in 1 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 1/3 to 2/3 cup ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
