Step 1

Dough Prep:

You can use dough processor bowl for this too, I tried doing it the old fashion way and it does take some work but it was worth it!
In a large bowl place the flour, salt, and sugar and with a fork mix until combined. Add butter, stir than pour water slowly and mix until you form a bowl.
Flour the work surface and put the dough ball on the flour.
With your hands knead the dough. The dough is ready once it is holding in one place(if you pinch it, it will still hold the shape).
Divide the dough in half and flattening each half into a disks, and cover with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate for about 30 minutes, maybe a bit more.
Take the dough from the fridge and one part put on a already floured work area.
Fold the dough in half and transfer to a 9in. circled pan.
Cover with plastic wrap and place it back in the fridge.
Than take the other part of the dough and roll it out to about 12in.
Best if you place it on the parchment paper and than back to the fridge until ready to be used.

Step 2

Apple Pie preparation:
Peel all the apples and cut into 1/2 in thick slices.
In a large glass bowl or any on your hand put sliced apples, and all other ingredients.
Mix with your hands to combine everything together, cover and let it sit on the room temperature for next 30 minutes or more.
Juices will come down and you can now drain the apples and separate juice from the apple mixture.
Put the juice in a microwave safe dish/or in the sauce pan and heat for 3 minutes in the microwave or on a low heat in a sauce pan for maybe 10 minutes until the juice reduce and becomes a thick sauce.
In a meanwhile take rolled dough out the fridge to get bit warm and it will be easier to work with warmer dough.
Now pour the thick sauce over the apples and stir.
Fill the apple dough with a apples, pack them nicely and keep from the edges.
Cover with a 12in rolled dough and with a finger shape the dough edges to get it sealed bit also to make it more appealing.
Cut the middle of the pie one line to let the steam get put.
Preheat the oven on 400F (200C) and bake the pie for about 40-50 minutes or until the pie is golden brown.
Because edges do burn faster after maybe 25 minutes of baking take some aluminium foil and wrap the edges all around the pie.
