Grandma's Fresh Apple Lattice Pie



Cut the dough into even strips, 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch wide, depending on how thick you want your lattice strips. You can use a  knife with or without a ruler or straight edge to guide you, or you can use a pizza wheel.

1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup regular sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup water
8 Mcintosh, Cortland or Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and sliced

Crust:
2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoons salt mix together with flour
2/3 cups shortening cut into the flour then add
4 1/2 tablespoons ice water

Mix till dough forms a ball...Roll out on floured board to cut.
Melt butter in a sauce pan. Stir in flour to form a paste. Add sugar, brown sugar and water; bring to a boil. Reduce temperature, and simmer 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, place the bottom crust in your pan. Fill with apples, mounded slightly. Cover with a lattice work crust. Gently pour the sugar and butter liquid over the crust. Pour slowly so that it does not run off.
Bake 15 minutes at 425 degrees. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and continue baking for 35 to 45 minutes.
