My Delight Apple Pie "Cupcakes"

Since Thanksgiving is next week, I thought it would be perfect to show you all a classic apple pie recipe! I made these and brought them over to my parents house, my dad is an apple pie expert. Every time we go out he orders apple pie and he said this was the best one he has ever had, he even said it tasted like his fathers recipe, who had passed away before I was born. That made me so happy! 

I got this recipe from Home Baking Made Easy. This recipe book is from 1953! 

Pre-heat oven to 425

Makes 13 "cupcake" pies

"Water-Whip" Method Pie Crust

3/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/4 cup boiling water
1 tablespoon milk
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt

Step 1: Put shortening in bowl then pour boiling water over top. Use a fork to break the shortening, next add in the milk and whip together with fork until you get soft peaks.

Step 2: Put flour and salt into sifter and sift ingredients over the shortening mixture. Mix together until dough is formed. You can roll out the dough and cut circles using the opening of a mason jar and put these pieces into cupcake pans.

Apple Pie Filling

6 cups pared, cored thin apple slices
1 cup sugar
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon butter

Step 1: In a bowl add the apples, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Mix together until all the apple slices are covered. Add 1 tablespoon of apple mixture into the pie crust. You can cover these pies any way you would like. I have many options in my video. Bake for 10-13 minutes.
