In a large bowl, add flour and whisk briefly until flour is aerated. Add shortening and rub into flour until reduced to irregular pea sized crumbs (rub gently). Dissolve salt and sugar in cold water. Add mixture all at once. Mix just enough to incorporate (do not over mix).
Transfer dough to a floured area. Shape into a thick roll. Cover and allow resting for 10 minutes prior to rolling. Cut in four equal pieces.
Apple Pie Filling
Peel, quarter and core apples. Cut in ¼" or irregular slices and place in a large bowl. Sprinkle lemon juice over and mix (to keep apples white). In a small bowl blend sugar, starch and cinnamon. Pour over apples. Sprinkle 1 tbsp water over top and mix thoroughly. Divide apple filling in half.
Roll-out pie dough to your plate size (a good measure is 1" more than the size of plate). Place dough on plate. Egg wash rim and fill with apple filling. Place little knobs of butter over apple filling if desired.
Roll-out same as before, cover apples. Secure to bottom crust. Water-wash top and sprinkle with sugar. Place on cookie sheet and bake in a pre-heat oven at 350 degrees F for approx 35-40 minutes or until done. Cool for 20 minutes before cutting. Serve with vanilla ice cream or cheddar cheese.
