  3. Wrap the dough in the kitchen foil and put it in the fridge for 30 minutes to an hour. (I divide my dough into two portions so I can use one now and another one later. It's also easier to work with two smaller pie crusts than a single large one.)

    Wrap the dough in food wrap
  4. While the dough is in the fridge prepare the apples.
