List of Ingredients you need for this recipe
You need four teaspoons of sugar, two half cups of flour, fourteen tablespoons of butter, a quarter teaspoon of fine salt, an egg that’s beaten with two tablespoons of cold water.

Steps in making this apple pie.
To make the dough by hand, make use of a medium-sized bowl and mix the salt, sugar, and flour. Use your fingers to work the butter and add it to the dry ingredients till it looks like yellow cornmeal. Put your egg and mix using a fork or your hand inside the bowl.
Arrange the dough into a disk shape. Wrap everything inside a plastic wrap and then put it in the fridge till it’s properly chilled for at least an hour.
You should make your filling. Put the lemon juice inside a medium bowl. It would be best if you cut, peel, halve the apples you’ve got. Cut every part into four different edges. Put the apple together with your lemon juice. Put your sugar and mix everything for them to combine properly.
Using a large skillet, that’s where you melt your butter over medium-high heat. You should add your apples, stirring, and then cook till your sugar dissolves and your entire mixture starts boiling for about two minutes. Then you cover, reduce the amount of thermal energy to medium-low and gently cook till you have softer apples, and wait for seven minutes for them to release a lot of their juices.
Then you strain the apple juices. Shake your colander. Pack the liquid. Put the juices into the skillet. Simmer everything till it’s caramelized for ten minutes. In a medium-sized bowl, throw your apples. Leave them to cool down.
Cut your dough into two. Use a surface you’ve floured before. Roll each half of your dough into a disc for about eleven to twelve inches wide. It would be best to layer your dough between different pieces or parchment of wax paper using a baking sheet. You should keep it in your fridge for at least ten minutes.
It would be best if you placed a rack in the lower part of the oven. It would be best if you preheat your oven to three hundred as seventy-five degrees.
It would be best to bake your pie using a baking sheet until the crust gets golden for about fifty minutes. It would be best if you kept everything cool before you serve the apple pie.
And that’s it, and your delicious apple pie is ready. It could stay in the fridge for a long while.
