Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°F. Prepare unbaked pie crust in 9-inch pie pan.

Modify sugar amount based on tartness of apples, and modify cornstarch based on juiciness of apples. If dry, add some water or lemon juice. Stir apples gently until coated. Place in layers in pie shell. Dot with 1 1/2 tablespoon butter

Cover pie with pricked upper crust. Bake 10 minutes at 450°F. Reduce heat to 350°F. Bake until done, 35 to 45 minutes or until golden brown.

Sprinkle top with sugar and cinnamon, brushing with milk first. Alternately, replace upper crust with streusel
