- 6 cups of thinly sliced apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
- 1 package refrigerated pie crusts (2 crusts)
- 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (for sprinkling)
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Place a baking sheet in the oven to preheat as well.
- In a large bowl, toss the thinly sliced apples with lemon juice to prevent browning.
- In a separate bowl, mix together granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and cornstarch.
- Add the sugar and spice mixture to the apples and toss until the apples are evenly coated.
- Roll out one of the pie crusts and place it in a 9-inch pie pan.
- Spoon the apple filling into the pie crust, mounding it slightly in the center.
- Dot the filling with small pieces of butter.
- Roll out the second pie crust and place it over the filling. Trim any excess dough and crimp the edges to seal.
- Brush the top crust with the beaten egg and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
- Make several small slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.
- Place the pie on the preheated baking sheet in the oven and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
- Remove from the oven and let cool before serving.
