Tasty Tuesday: Brandon's Apple Pie

It's apple picking season and what could be better for kicking off fall than an apple pie. Brandon and Seth from Paws on Me like apple pie. They even like to eat it in non-traditional ways ;)

Here's the recipe for Brandon's apple pie.....

Crust for a 2 crust pie
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 pinch baking powder
8T cold butter cut into small pieces
2T shortening
8-9T ice water with a few drops of lemon juice added
Mix dry ingredients. Cut in butter and shortening. Do not overmix. Add water and mix with a fork. Turn out on a cutting board or other hard surface. Split in half and form into two flattened disks. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or up to 2 days.

Bake 15 minutes at 425F and then 30-45 minutes at 350F.
