Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
    Put all of the sliced apples into a large bowl.
    In a small bowl, mix together the sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.
    Place one of the pie crust into a 10 inch pie pan. Pour the 3/4 of the sugar mixture over the apples and toss to coat.
    Put one layer of apples into the pie crust and shake a little more of the sugar mixture on top. Repeat.
    Put the top layer of apples into the pie.
    Roll out the other pie crust and cut into 1 inch strips.
    Put 4 strips of dough across the pie horizontally. Lift strips 1 and 3 and put a strip of dough vertically. Repeat from the opposite side.
    Lift strips 2 and 3 and put a strip of dough vertically. Repeat from the opposite side.
    Continue doing that until the lattice top looks the way you would like.
    Using a fork or your fingers, press down on the edges of the pie to make the lattice top as seamless as possible from the crust.
    Use a brush to put the egg yolk onto the dough.
    Bake for 45 minutes.

Notes

You can peel, core and slice all of the apples one (1) day before making the pie. Put them into a large bowl and squeeze 1/2 a lemon on top. Cover them securely with plastic wrap. This will stop them from browning.
