Granny Smith Apple Pie
pastry for two 9-inch pie crusts
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 large, Granny Smith apples, cored, peeled, and sliced
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
2. Roll out half of the pastry and fit it into a 9-inch pie pan.
3. In a small mixing bowl, combine the sugar, flour, cinnamon,
and nutmeg. Place the sliced apples in a large bowl; toss with
the sugar mixture, coating each slice. Pile the apples high into
the prepared piecrust.

Cover with top crust. Moisten the edges of the crust with water,
then crimp to seal. Cut several openings in the top to

bake for an additional 45 minutes or until browned and bubbly.
