"Apple Pie by Grandma Ople"

I got this recipe from, made a couple alterations, and it ended up being the BEST apple pie I have ever had.

You need:
Pie Crust- recipe-
1 cup vegetable shortening
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup cold water
Mix shortening, flour, salt and water, just til combined and ball starts to form.
Divide the dough in 2 parts (for top and bottom crust)
Roll out one half onto a floured surface and place into the bottom of your pie plate. Save the other half to make a lattice top.
For Apple Filling:
7 granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced.
1/2 cup butter
3 tbsp flour
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp cinnamon

Place your apples into the pie plate

In a saucepan, melt butter, add flour and stir until paste forms.

Stir in the water, sugars, vanilla, and cinnamon

Bring to a boil and reduce heat, let simmer about 5 min.
In the meantime, make your lattice pie top. Roll out the other half of the dough and cut it into strips. Lay over the apples in a lattice form. Pour the sauce right over the top of the pie and bake at 350 for 45 min.
