In this tutorial I'll show you how how to make my newest delicious creation: blueberry apple pie.

Step 1: Making the dough

Purchasing a pre-made pie crust from the local store is always an option, but I love to make my own dough. Here's what you'll need to make the simple, yet flaky and wonderful pie crust that I always use:

What you'll need:
2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tbsp salt
2/3 cup shortening
6 tbsp ice water

and I usually add some spices to my dough for a little more flavor.
This time I used pinches of Allspice and Cinnamon.


1. Combine flour, salt, and spices. Cut in the shortening until crumbly.
2. Gradually add water until the dough can form a ball.
3. Split the dough so one half is slightly larger than the other. (The larger part will be used for the bottom crust, and the smaller for the top crust.)
