For the crust

  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 4-5 tablespoons ice cold water

For the filling

  • 6-8 apples peeled and sliced
  • cups sugar
  • cups water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3 tablespoons butter


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. To make the crust, sift together the flour and salt. Pour the oil and cold water into a measuring cup, but do not stir. Add all at once to the flour mixture. Stir lightly with a fork until the mixture forms a ball. Do not over mix. Divide the dough in half. Roll out each ball between wax paper.
  • To make the syrup, combine the sugar, water, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat and add the butter. Allow it to cool slightly.
  • Line a well greased 9 x 13 casserole dish with half the crust. Fill with peeled and sliced apples. Place several thin pats of butter on the apples.
  • Pour the syrup over the apples and lay the top crust in place. Poke with a knife or cut with a cookie cutter in several places. Bake 35 minutes or until the crust is lightly browned.
