Best Homemade Apple Pie recipe with a flaky, buttery pie crust and homemade apple pie filling. Made perfect with the most amazing creamy cheesecake layer.
I prefer to make the bottom and top separately, it makes it easier to roll the dough. Follow the Instructions and make two dough balls, one for the bottom and one for the top.
Add flour, salt, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg to a food processor. Add butter and shortening and process until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Shape the dough into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 3 hours or overnight.
Repeat to make the Top crust and also place in the fridge.
Transfer crust to the pie plate and press evenly into the bottom and sides of the pie dish.
Brush the top and edges of the pie with the egg wash. Sprinkle some sugar on top.
