Apple slice recipe

My mom has made these family favorites since I was a child. They are loved by all of my siblings, my parents, my grandparents, and my grandchildren. This family favorite is a must-have.



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Two eggs
  • One tablespoon lemon juice


  • 6 Apples – Peeled, Cored, and Cut into 1/2-inch Thick Slices. Or more for a better taste
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • Three tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


    1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175° C).
    2. In a large bowl, whisk together 2 cups flour with salt. Use a pastry blender to cut shortening into the flour mixture.
    3. Mix water, eggs, lemon juice, and salt separately. Add flour to the bowl. Knead until the mixture forms a ball. Divide the dough into two equal parts and roll each into a rectangle measuring 9×13 inches. Place one rectangle in the bottom of a 9×13-inch baking dish.
    4. Add the apple slices to a large bowl. Spread the crust over the apples. To cover the apple filling, add the remaining crust. You can use any leftovers to make a seam. To allow air to circulate during cooking, cut several slits in the top crust.
    5. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour in the oven until the edges are crisp and browned. Allow cooling to room temperature before cutting into pieces, approximately 30 minutes.
