2 cups white flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/2 cups shortening
2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. Pioneer sugar
10-12 Tbsp. cold water
6 lbs. Michigan McIntosh Apples, peeled and sliced
1 1/2 Tbsp. cinnamon
1 lb. Pioneer light brown sugar
1/3 stick of salted butter, melted
4-6 Tbsp. white flour
Mix all ingredients for crust EXCEPT water and store in fridge - crust chills while filling is prepared.
Rinse and drain peeled apple slices. Stir in filling ingredients. Pile filling into bottom crust, which is placed in 10-inch glass pie pan. Place top crust on top of filling. Form a rope look around the edge. Draw an apple on center of top crust and paint with food coloring. Brush milk on crust where not decorated. Place foil around edge of pie. Bake for 15 minutes at 450 degrees, then drop temperature to 350 degrees and bake for another hour to 1 ½ hours, depending on the apples.
