- 6 cups of peeled, cored, and sliced apples
- 3/4 cup of granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
- 1 package of refrigerated pie crusts
- 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, sugar, lemon juice, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and flour. Toss until the apples are evenly coated.
- Unroll one pie crust and place it into a 9-inch pie dish. Pour the apple filling into the crust.
- Unroll the second pie crust and place it over the apple filling. Pinch the edges to seal and create a decorative crust. Cut a few slits on the top crust to allow steam to escape.
- Brush the top crust with the beaten egg, and optionally, sprinkle with a bit of sugar for a golden, sweet finish.
- Bake the pie in the preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
- Remove the pie from the oven and let it cool for at least 2 hours before serving. This allows the filling to set and ensures easy slicing.
