Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the apples, sugar, water, tapioca, cinnamon and nutmeg; toss to coat. Let stand for 15 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; cut in shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Divide in half, making one half slightly larger.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll out larger portion of pastry to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to plate; trim even with edge of plate. Add filling; dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry.
  4. To make a lattice crust: Cut round into ½ inch strips. Place 6 strips across filling. Weave a cross-strip through center by first folding back every other strip going the other way. Continue weaving lattice, folding back alternate strips before adding each cross-strip, until lattice is complete. Fold trimmed edge of bottom crust over ends of strips, building up a high edge: seal and flute.
  5. Brush with milk and egg white; sprinkle with coarse sugar. Cover edge of pastry with 2-to 3 inch strip of foil to prevent excessive browning.
  6. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 40-50 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.
