Classic Apple Pie

This is a bit of a cheat, since I'm using pre-made, frozen crusts, but it was nevertheless nice to have a homemade apple pie to eat during the week.

Classic Apple Pie

Two pre-made, frozen crusts
2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
dash of salt
4 medium apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced

1. Heat oven to 425 degrees. Thaw pie crusts according to package instructions. Flatten one pie crust to use as pie top.

2. Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in large bowl. Stir in apples.

3. Turn mixture into pastry-lined pie plate. Cover with top pastry, cutting slits in middle to release steam. Seal and flute edges.

4. Cover edges of pie with 2" stripe of aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning; remove foil during last 15 minutes of baking.

5. Bake 40-50 minutes or until crust is golden brown and juice begins to bubble through slits in crust. Cool on wire rack for at least 2 hours.
