Cooking Time1 hr

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated orange rind
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons ice water
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons very cold orange juice
  • 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch of ground ginger
  • 2 tablespoons cold, unsalted butter
  • 7 to 8 medium Granny Smith apples
  • 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange rind
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 egg, beaten

Instructions

  1. For pie crust, sift flour and salt into large bowl.
     
  2. Cut in butter and shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
     
  3. Add orange rind.
     
  4. Sprinkle in juice and water, 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing with fork until flour is moistened and soft dough forms. Shape into ball. Refrigerate, covered, 60 minutes.
     
  5. For crumb topping, mix flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and ginger.
     
  6. Work in butter with fingers until mixture is crumbly.
     
  7. For filling, peel core and cut apples into 1/2-inch slices.
     
  8. Put slices in large bowl; toss with 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons flour.
     
  9. Add sugar, cinnamon, orange rind, vanilla extract, nutmeg and salt.
     
  10. Stir in honey; let stand 60 minutes.
     
  11. Heat oven to 450 degrees F. Roll half of dough into a circle; fit in metal, 9-inch pie pan. Trim edge.
     
  12. Drain liquid from apples, reserve.
     
  13. Set 1/4 cup of the crumb topping aside. Layer apples with remaining crumbs in dough-lined pan. Use crumbs like mortar to build fruit up.
     
  14. Dot apples with 1 1/2 tablespoons butter.
     
  15. Sprinkle with 5 tablespoons reserved apple liquid.
     
  16. Roll out remaining dough; cut with knife or fluted pastry wheel into 1/2-inch-wide strips.
     
  17. Weave strips into lattice over fruit. Seal strips at edge of pan, moistening with apple liquid.
     
  18. Flute edge.
     
  19. Sprinkle reserved crumbs in holes of lattice. Brush only crust edge and strips with beaten egg.
     
  20. Bake on foil-lined baking sheet at 450 degrees F, 5 minutes.
     
  21. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F; bake until apples are tender, 50 to 55 more minutes (or only 40 minutes if you like crunchier apples).
     
  22. Cool on wire rack to room temperature.
