DIRECTIONS

  • Heat oven to 425°F.
  • Place one pie crust in a 9" pie place. Press firmly against the side and bottom.
  • In a large bowl, gently mix filling ingredients; spoon into crust-line pie plates. Top with second pie crust. Wrap excess top pie crust under the bottom crust edge, pressing edges together to seal; flute. Cut slits of shapes in several places of top crust.
  • Bake 40 - 45 minutes, or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Cover crust with 2-3 inch wide strips of foil 15 - 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning. I bought one of those round crust shields that really works here. Cool on cooling rack at least 2 hours before serving.
  • Variation short cut: One 21 oz can of apple pie filling and one 21 oz can of sliced apples can be substituted for the filling - still use the spices.
  • Add- on - Caramel Apple Pie - immediately after removing pie from the oven, drizzle 1/3 cup (or less) of caramel sundae toppng (like Smuckers) on top of the pie and sprinkle with @ with two tablespoons of chopped pecans. I have done this and it is wonderful both in taste and appearance.
