Apple Pie

1 quart of homemade apple pie filling (I'll post the recipe later)

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small pieces

2 tablespoons vegetable shortening, cut into small pieces

1 tablespoon lemon juice

3/4 cup ice water

Combine flour and salt in a large bowl; cut in 6 tablespoons butter and vegetable shortening with a pastry cutter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add lemon juice. Sprinkle surface with ice water, one tablespoon at a time, and toss with a fork until moist and crumbly. Shape dough into ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Chill one hour.

Divide dough into two balls. Roll one dough portion into a 12-inch circle on a lightly floured surface. Fit dough into a 9 inch pie plate coated with cooking spray, allow the dough to extend over the edge.

Roll the remaining dough portion into a 10 inch circle. Spoon pie filling into prepared pie plate. Top with the 10 inch dough circle. Press edges of dough together. Fold egdes under and flute. Bursh surface of dough with milk. Cut 3 slits in the top of dough. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour or until apples are tender.
