Green Apple Jam Pie

7/10- i would bake a tad longer with foil over top and make my own jam w frozen berries
difficulty: 5


crust:
2 1/2 c ap flour
3/4 tsp salt
*1/3 c shortening
*1/2 c coconut oil/ earth balance
10 tbsp ice water
almond milk and course sugar to top
*freeze for 15 mins before use (and your cutting utensil if you’re feeling pro)
filling:
8c granny smith apples
enough lemon juice to coat apples
2 tbsp cornstarch
1/4 tsp salt
1 heaping tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp allspice
2 tsp vanilla
jam- i used a 4 oz jar of blueberry and ended up adding a few tbsps of strawberry and mixed berry to get a better coat

crust:
whisk dry ingredients. cut in shortening until coarse. add coconut oil and cut until no piece bigger than a dime remain, (chunks are good, though). add ice water 2 tbsp until mixture is just moist enough to bring together. fold about 6-10 times (or until just combined) and form 2 disks (one twice as large as the other). immediately place in fridge for at least 2 hours (maybe make filling during this time). preheat oven to 425. working one disk at a time, roll out until about 13 in in diameter. roll onto floured rolling pin and flop into standard pie dish. place in fridge while rolling out second disk. use pizza cutter/ sharp knife to cut strips. fill base with filling and carefully lattice top with strips. brush with almond milk and sprinkle with sugar. bake for 20 minutes, then lower temp to 375 and continue to bake for another 40-50. 
filling:
peel and cut apples into slices. add lemon juice. add dry ingredients and toss to coat. add vanilla and jam.
