I am Petra with Mom's Apple Pie Bakery in Occoquan, Virginia. We are a family business and we have been making pies over 25 years and today we're going to make a butter crust apple pie. Alright, let's go. Alright. So, here we have all the ingredients and tools you're going to need to make your butter crust apple pie, and for the dough, for the crust, we have pastry flour, which is a little more fine than all-purpose flour and we have about two sticks of unsalted butter and you use only one tablespoon of sugar and a teaspoon of salt. You're going to use a food processor to get all of those ingredients together. At the end of processing those ingredients you add just a few tablespoons of ice water, just to pull the dough together and for the filling, of course, you're going to need apple. This is about three York apples. They are kind of large apples, they are an old fashioned variety, they are really tart and they are really flavorful, but you can use any nice tart firm apple like a green Golden Delicious, it's a really good one to use, or Granny Smith and also for the filling, you need more sugar, probably about a cup of sugar, and a heaping tablespoon of cornstarch. A touch of salt and cinnamon to taste we use about a teaspoon, not too much, so you can still taste the really nice fresh apples. You of course, need a rolling pin to roll out your dough, and when you're done putting the pie together, you're going to paint it with egg wash, so that's basically just an egg and a few tablespoons of sugar, just to give it a nice sheen on the top, and that's all the tools you need.
