6 cups peeled, cored, sliced apples (I like a blend of Fuji and Granny Smith)
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons cold butter
Mix flour and salt. Use a pastry cutter to cut in the cold butter. Mix until it reaches the consistency of coarse crumbs (cornmeal). Slowly add 4 tablespoons of water, working the mixture with your hands until it begins to come together. Add more water only if you can’t get the mixture to stick together after working it for several seconds. (Don’t overwork it or the dough will be too hard.)
Wrap in plastic wrap and place in fridge for 30 minutes.
Roll out on a well floured surface, and transfer to pie plate.
Mix sugar, cinnamon and flour. Add to apples and mix well. Add to pie shell.
