  • 3 pounds apples (or 6 cups sliced apples)
  • 2/3 cup sugar, granulated
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg - ground (may use freshly grated nutmeg)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 15 ounces 9
  • 1 tablespoon butter - unsalted
15 mins
1 hr
1.5 hrs
  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Peel, core, and slice apples into 1/2" to 3/4" thick slices and place in a large bowl. Mix sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cornstarch together and sprinkle over the apples.
  • Place 1 crust in bottom of pie tin so that it overlaps the edges of pie tin. Pour sliced apples mixture on crust.
  • Dot apple mixture with butter (see TIP). Cover apples with remaining crust. Crimp the top crust to the bottom crust. Cut approximately 6 slits in top crust.
  • To prevent the crimped crust from overbrowning, cover crimped edges with aluminum foil. Place pie pan on baking sheet and place in oven. Bake 50-60 minutes or until crust is golden in color and apples are soft.
  • Serve warm or cold with your favorite topping.
TIP: An easy way to dot with butter is to grate cold butter on a cheese grater and sprinkle grated butter over pie filling.
