  • 6 cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (6 medium)

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
  • Milk

And for the instructions:


  1. Heat oven to 425°F. Place 1 pie crust in an ungreased 9-inch glass pie plate. Press firmly against side and bottom.
  2. In a large bowl, gently mix filling ingredients; spoon into crust-lined pie plate. Cut butter into small pieces; sprinkle over filling. Top with second crust. Wrap excess top crust under bottom crust edge. Press edges together to seal; flute. Cut slits or shapes in several places in top crust. Brush top crust with milk.
  3. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Cover edge of crust with 2- to 3-inch-wide strips of foil after first 15 to 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning. Cool on cooling rack at least 2 hours before serving.
