Apple Pie in a Bag

  • 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.
