Ingredients

  • 1

    pastry for double crusted pie

  • 6

    cups peeled, sliced Granny Smith apples ( about 1½ pounds)

  • ½

    cup sugar

  • ½

    cup brown sugar

  • 2

    TBSP all purpose flour

  • ½

    tsp ground cinnamon

  • ¼

    tsp ground nutmeg

  • 2

    TBSP butter, chopped

  • 1

    TBSP lemon juice

Directions

1. Roll half of the pastry to 1/8th inch thickness on a surface that's been sprayed with cooking spray. Gently place in a 9 inch pie plate; set aside. 2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Combine lemon juice and apples in a large bowl. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and next four ingredients, mixing well. Spoon over apple mixture, tossing gently. Spoon filling evenly into pastry shell and dot with chopped butter. 3. Roll remaining crust 1/8 inch thick and prepare how you want it ( ie. lattice, etc) and bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake 50 minutes more. Key a careful eye pie during cooking, may need to shield if it starts to get too brown, or foil around edges of pie if concerned.
