My First Apple Pie

Apple pie was always avoided during Thanksgiving at it looked daunting and impossible to get done well. This Thanksgiving we decide to face our fears and get the apple pie done. To be on the safe side we bought some ready made pie crust. We chose Pillsbury Pie Crust. It turned out amazing!

5 medium apples, peeled and cut into small cubes
3/4 cup of sugar
2 tablespoons of flour
3/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of sea salt
1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice
1 package of Pillsbury Pie Crust

Remove one pie crust from pouch; unroll crust on greased 9-inch glass pie plate.

In a large bowl, mix filling ingredients: apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg and lemon juice. Pour the mixture into crust-lined pie plate.

Remove the second pie crust from pouch; unroll on top of the pie, pressing edges together to seal. Cut slits or shapes in several places in top crust.

Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown (oven=375 F). Enjoy!
