6–8 medium-sized apples (such as Granny Smith or Honeycrisp), peeled, cored, and thinly sliced

1 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

1 package (2 pre-rolled crusts) refrigerated pie crusts


9-inch pie dish

Rolling pin

Pastry brush

Mixing bowls

Sharp knife


Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, flour, and lemon juice. Toss until the apples are evenly coated.

Roll out one of the pie crusts and place it in the bottom of the pie dish.

Pour the apple mixture into the crust, spreading it out evenly.

Dot the apples with small pieces of butter.

Roll out the second pie crust and place it over the apples.

Trim any excess crust hanging over the edges.

Crimp the edges of the crust to seal the pie.

Cut a few slits in the top crust to allow steam to escape.

Brush the top crust with a little milk or beaten egg for a golden finish.

Bake for 45–50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the apples are tender.

Let the pie cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.
