- 6 cups peeled, cored, and sliced apples (a mix of sweet and tart varieties)
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 package refrigerated pie crusts
- 1 egg, beaten (for egg wash)
- 1 tablespoon sugar (for sprinkling)
- Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
- In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples, granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice, and flour. Toss until the apples are well coated.
- Roll out one pie crust and place it in a 9-inch pie dish. Pour the apple mixture into the crust.
- Roll out the second pie crust and create a lattice or a full crust for the top. Seal the edges and trim off any excess dough. Crimp the edges with a fork or your fingers.
- Brush the crust with the beaten egg and sprinkle with sugar.
- Place the pie on a baking sheet (to catch any drips) and bake for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
- Remove from the oven and let it cool for at least 2 hours before serving.
