How to make a Homemade Apple Pie

  1. Mix flour, salt, baking powder and sugar in a bowl.
  2. Add the Mazola® Corn Oil, and mix well.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the water and the eggl.
  4. Pour the liquid ingredients.
  5. Turn the dough out onto a floured board and divide it in half.
  6. Wrap each dough ball in a plastic wrap and refrigerate them until they’re ready to use.
  7. In the meantime, add lemon juice to a large bowl of water in which to place the apples to avoid browning.
  8. Then wash, peel and slice the apples into ½ inch sized slices. Place them in the lemon water. Also let one lemon cut in half.
  9. In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon and flour.
  10. Scoop the apples out of the water and drain them. Then add them to the sugar mix and stir well.
  11. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  12. Roll one pastry ball into a 12 inch circle. To prevent sticking, use plenty of flour. Lift and turn the dough frequently. Fold it onto a rolling pin and transfer it to a pie plate.
  13. Pour the apple mix into the pastry.
  14. Then roll out the remaining dough.
  15. Cut it into 1 inch strips and place them over the apples: first from left to right, then perpendicular to the first strips, making a “crossboard” pattern.
  16. Just a quick tip! Moisten the edge of the pie shell with water to ensure a tight seal.
  17. Whisk together the egg and water. Use a pastry brush to evenly coat the top strips of the pie with the egg wash.
  18. Bake the homemade apple pie at 425°F for 15 minutes. Reduce the heat to 375°F and bake for an additional 30 minutes.
  19. Remove from the oven and cool slightly before serving so the filling sets a little.
