1 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
cinnamon to taste (1tsp to 1Tblsp)
pinch of salt
2 tsp lemon juice

Crust for a 9″ double crust pie
2/1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup butter
pinch of sale
approximately 3 oz ice cold water
very cold hands

For the Curst:
Mix salt and flour together
cut butter into the flour mixture until it resembles crumbs
Sprinkle the ice water on the dough and mix until it forms a ball
Let the dough rest in the refrigerator for at least ten minutes
On a clean, floured surface roll our two identical crust to fit your pie plate

Line the pie plate with one crust.

In a separate bowl mix all the filling ingredients together and place in pie plate
Dot with butter
cover with the top crust
crimp edges
poke steam holes in the top
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
Bake for ten minutes are 425 and then the heat to 370 for 35-45 minutes or until juices bubble out of the crust

It’s a good idea to put a cookie sheet under the pie while baking. It helps prevent spills in the oven
