To prepare apples: Pare, core and slice apples. Turn into bowl, mix with filling ingredients. To assemble pie: Arrange apples in rows over crust in pan, leaving 2" empty at edges. Dot with 2 T. of butter. Arrange strips in criss-cross fashion over apples, then fold edges of crust up and over ends of strips, pinch corners to seal. Beat egg and milk, and brush pastry with the mixture. Bake @ 400° for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden and apples are cooked.
