Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 55 minutes
Servings: 1 pie
- 1 box refrigerated pie crusts, at room temperature
- 5 - 6 apples, peeled and thinly sliced
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
- pinch salt
- 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Here’s how you make it:
- Take two pie crusts that are at room temperature. Lay one on the bottom a glass pie plate or aluminum pie pan. Press to form the crust. Set aside.
- Combine the remaining ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Pour into the pie crust.
- Cover the filling with the second pie crust and seal the edges. Cut a few slits in the top. If you feel so inclined, cut strips and do a lattice top.
- Bake in a preheated 425-degree F oven for about 45 minutes, or until crust is golden and apples are tender. Cool pie at least 2 hours before serving. Serve with whipped cream, or vanilla or cinnamon ice cream.
Tip: If edges of crust start to brown too quickly, cover them with strips of aluminum foil.
