Ingredients


  • Ingredients for crust:
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon vegetable shortening or lard
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cooked Patrick Cudahy? Sweet Apple-Wood Smoked Bacon
  • 4 tablespoons cold water
  • Ingredients for pie:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped cooked Patrick Cudahy? Sweet Apple-Wood Smoked Bacon
  • 5 cups thinly sliced peeled Granny Smith apples
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Directions


  • Heat oven to 400?F. For pastry, in a medium bowl, mix flour and salt. Cut in shortening with pastry blender or two knives until the size of coarse meal. Stir in bacon. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together. If dough seems dry add additional cold water 1/2 tablespoon at a time. Form dough into two balls. On a floured surface, roll out one ball of dough to a 10-inch thickness. Place in a 9-inch pie pan.
  • For filling, in a large bowl, combine sugar, cinnamon and salt. Stir in bacon. Add apples; toss well and transfer to pastry lined pie pan. Roll remaining ball of dough out to 10-inch circle; place over apples. Turn edges of top pastry over bottom pastry; crimp to seal well and flute. Cut 4 or 5 slits in top of pastry. If desired, sprinkle additional sugar over top of pie. Cover edges of pastry with strips of aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until deep golden brown. Cool at least 1 hour before serving.
