1 Pre-made pie crust and top
6 Cups Thinly sliced, peeled apples (6 medium)
3/4 Cup Sugar
2 TBSPs All-purpose flour
3/4 TSP Ground cinnamon
1/4 TSP Salt
1/8 TSP Ground nutmeg
1 TBSP Lemon juice
- Heat oven to 375°F. Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Press firmly against side and bottom.
- In large bowl, gently mix Filling ingredients; spoon into crust-lined pie plate. To make lattice top, cut second crust into 6 (2-inch wide) strips. Arrange strips in lattice design over filling. Wrap excess top crust under bottom crust edge, pressing edges together to seal; flute. Brush crust with water, and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar. Cut slits or shapes in several places in top crust.
