Pat's Appalachian Apple Pie (From Scratch)

I've been making this same apple pie for years -- very basic. This pie is crammed with apples, not too sweet and a crust that's easy to make and tastes good too. If your apples are really tart, increase the sugar to 2/3 cup. I've taught a few people first-hand to make this pie, (exactly as I have the instructions here, although some folks make their apples up a couple of hours ahead of time), and they've all said that it was really easy as long as they went step-by-step and didn't get into a big hurry. And the secret to this easy crust is CRISCO. I've tried cheap shortening before in a pinch and it just doesn't work for me. I've tried lard too but I don't like the aftertaste. Also, I don't bother to sift my flour -- I just use it straight out of the bag and I never have a problem. So, have fun with this one -- it's a good recipe to get teens involved with if they show some interest in cooking because this pie comes out of the oven looking so great even when there are big "patches" on the crust. Enjoy! big pat.
