Gather all equipment and ingredients. Remove 2 eggs from refrigeration and allow to come to room temperature.
Every six cups of apples are equal to one baked pie. With this in mind, peel, core, and rough chop into 1-inch pieces.
Squeeze and toss with lemon juice and divide into 6-cup increments. Bag in 3 separate freezer-safe zippered bags and place into freezer.
In a bowl, add COLD shortening, all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Use your pastry cutter or hands to blend all until it's mealy.
Beat the egg mixture directly over the bowl of dry ingredients, scattering that egg all over as you go.
