Ingredients

  • 2 prepared pie crusts
  • 6-7 medium-sized apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 egg (for egg wash)

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, gently toss the sliced apples with lemon juice to prevent browning.
  2. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour, and salt to the apples. Gently mix until the apples are coated with the mixture.
  3. Roll out one pie crust and place it in a pie dish. Spoon the apple mixture onto the crust.
  4. Roll out the second pie crust and cut it into strips to create a lattice pattern over the apples.
  5. Trim and seal the edges of the pie crusts, then brush the lattice crust with an egg wash for a golden finish.
  6. Bake at 375°F (190°C) for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is beautifully golden and the filling is bubbling.
  7. Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly before slicing.
