In a bowl, stir together flour and salt. Add shortening and blend until
mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 4-6 Tbsp ice water or enough to form
into soft but not sticky dough, tossing the mixture with a fork. Form dough
into a ball, flatten it slightly, dust with flour and chill it, wrapped in
wax paper, for 1 hour. Divide dough into 2 pieces, one slightly larger than
the other. Chill the larger piece, wrapped in wax paper. Roll out the
other, 1/8-inch thick on a floured surface, and fit it to a 9-inch pie
plate, and trim the edge leaving a 1/2-inch overhang. Chill the pie shell
while making the filling. In a large bowl, stir together 14 Tbsp sugar,
flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, salt, and zest. Peel, quarter, and core
the apples; slice thinly, crosswise, and add them to the sugar mixture,
tossing to coat well. Mound the apple mixture in the pie shell, sprinkle
with lemon juice and dot with butter. Roll out the larger piece of dough to
a 13 or 14-inch round on a floured surface and drape it over the filling.
Trim top crust, leaving a 1-inch overhang. Fold overhang under bottom
crust, pressing the edge to seal it. Crimp the edge decoratively with a
fork. Make slits in the top crust to form steam vents. Brush with h&h and
sprinkle with the remaining sugar. Bake pie in lower third of a preheated
425f oven for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 375f and bake for 40-45 minutes
more, or until filling is bubbling and crust is golden. Transfer pie to a
rack to cool. In a chilled bowl, beat cream with the honey, cinnamon, and
nutmeg until it holds soft peaks. Transfer to a serving dish. Serve the pie
warm or at room temperature with the Honey Spice Whipped Cream. a 1988
