Cook Time: 55 min - 1 hr 5 min | Yield: 8-12 servings

Ingredients

  • Pastry for 9-inch double crust pie
  • 6 cups sliced and peeled tart apples
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon butter, cut in small pieces

Directions

Line a 9-inch pie pan with pastry. Mix next 8 ingredients and fill pie shell, laying apple slices flat. Dot with the butter. Roll out top crust and cut slits in several places for steam to escape. Moisten edges of crust well with cold water and adjust top crust. With fingers or fork, pinch two crusts together to make a tight seal around pie. Bake at 450° 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350° and bake 40 to 50 minutes longer.
