Ingredients

  • 2 piecrusts unbaked
  • 6 cups sliced apples
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • tsp nutmeg

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Place one rolled-out crust into a 9-inch pie plate. Add apple filling, then top with second rolled-out crust. Trim edges and decorate as desired, ensuring the top and bottom crust are well sealed all the way around. Cut 4-5 slits into the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  • Cover edges of crust with strips of tinfoil or a pie shield. Place in preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes. Then, remove foil or shield and bake an additional 15 minutes or until top is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  • Cool a minimum of 2 hours, (but preferably overnight) before serving.

Notes

This filling freezes very well. Just add all ingredients to a freezer-safe container (large Ziplok bags work well) and freeze. Allow to thaw before baking in a pie. When thawed from frozen, the filling gets very juicy, so be sure to brush the bottom piecrust with egg white before filling.
