½ pound butter or parve margarine
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tbsp sugar
¹/8 tsp salt
¼ cup cold water
5-6 apples, peeled, cored, and finely sliced
¼ cup raisins
Juice and grated rind of 1 lemon
2 tbsp grated almonds or walnuts
1 egg yolk
1. Using a food processor or pastry blender, combine the butter or margarine, flour, sugar, and salt. Spin or blend well and slowly add the cold water. When a soft ball forms, divide in half, wrap in waxed paper, and refrigerate for about 1 hour, or until firm.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
3. Combine the apples, raisins, and lemon juice and rind.
4. Roll out half the dough and press into a 10-inch pie plate. Fill with the apple mixture. Roll out the top crust and cover the pie. Seal the crust. Make a few air holes with a fork. Sprinkle some grated nuts mixed with egg yolk and lemon rind on top. Bake 40 minutes or until golden.
