  • Salt - ½ tsp
  • Shortening - ½ cup
  • Cold water - 2 to 3 tbsp
  • Filling -
  • Tart apples (sliced and peeled) - 4 cups

Instructions
  1. Add 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour and ½ tsp salt to a large mixing bowl, and stir the contents of the bowl until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
  2. Slowly cut in ½ cup shortening until mixture in the bowl becomes crumbly. Add 2 to 3 tbsp cold water gradually and simultaneously toss the mixture with a fork until it assumes the shape of a ball.
  3. Preheat an oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  4. As the oven preheats, transfer the contents of the mixing bowl onto a flat surface and roll with a rolling pin until the pastry formed is big enough to fit a 9-in. pie plate; flute edges.
  5. Mix 4 cups tart apples (sliced and peeled) and ¼ tsp ground cinnamon and pour the mixture into the crust. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes.
  6. Add ¼ tsp salt to a small mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients and then add 1 egg, 2 tbsp melted butter and ½ teaspoon vanilla extract; simultaneously stirring contents of the small mixing bowl.
  7. Add in the last ingredient i.e. ¼ cup flaked coconut and carefully spoon mixture in the small mixing bowl over hot apples.
  8. Your aim should be to cover the entire surface properly.
  9. To complete the recipe, bake for another 30 minutes and check if the apples are tender. Keep on baking till that happens.
  10. After the pie is made, let it cool on the rack for 15 minutes.
  11. After then allow it to reach room temperature. Do not eat it hot, as the fillings can burn your mouth.
