Apple Pie in a Bag
Ingredients



8 cups Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon orange juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup sugar
1 9-inch pie shell
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) butter or margarine
1 teaspoon grated orange zest


Heat oven to 400° F.


Toss apples with orange juice, cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons each flour and sugar.
Fill pastry shell with apple mixture, mounding in the center.
In small bowl, combine remaining flour and sugar; with pastry blender or
fork, cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in orange zest.
Gather mixture together to make form a soft dough.
Flatten small pieces of dough between fingers and arrange on top of apple filling. (Dough will not completely cover filling.)
Wrap pie in a 30- by 15-inch piece of parchment paper, folding parchment
over top of pie making sure it does not touch pie; staple ends of
parchment to seal.
Set on rack in center of oven and bake for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Carefully open parchment and allow steam to escape.
Remove pie from parchment and cool on wire rack.
