- Extras : raisins & pecans, almonds, etc.
Cook the thinly sliced apples, raisins, chopped pecans with the sugar for about 15-20 minutes. Let cool before filling the pie.In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in water, a tablespoon at a time, until mixture forms a ball. cut the dough in two, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for an hour or two.
Roll dough out to fit a 9 inch pie plate. Place crust in pie plate. Press the dough evenly into the bottom and sides of the pie plate.spread the crushed biscuit on the bottom pie crust. It helps to absorb the excess liquid from the filling.fill the pie with the now cool apple pie filling.
