Ingredients
  

  • 2 9" pie crust pastries for a double crust
  • 4 - 5 apples Granny smith, or a variety of crisp apples
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 Tbs. butter

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Peel, core, and chop apples.
  • Mix sugars, cinnamon, salt, cornstarch, and lemon juice. Add to apples and stir to coat.
  • Pour the apple mixture into the crust. Dot with thin slices of butter.
  • Wet the edge of the crust with cold water, and put your second crust on the top. Lightly press the edges to seal. Using a knife, trim off the extra crust (you can use this to make a tiny personal pie crust). Crimp the edges.
  • Cut a few slits into the top crust to allow steam to escape.
  • Brush cream or egg yolk on the top crust and sprinkle it with sugar for an extra shine and beautiful browning.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for 10 minutes at 400°. reduce the temperature to 350°, and continue baking for another 50 minutes.

Notes

If you want an extra flavor you can add a pinch of nutmeg and cloves, but be careful, they can quickly overpower your flavor.
 Apple pie is great served warm with ice cream, or cold.
