Yield: 8 Servings
|½ cup||Plus 1 tablespoon sugar; divided|
|¼ cup||All-purpose flour|
|½ teaspoon||Spice Islands Ground Cinnamon; (1/2 to 1)|
|¼ teaspoon||Spice Islands Ground Cloves|
|¼ teaspoon||Spice Islands Ground Nutmeg|
|2 pounds||Thinly sliced; peeled tart apples (approx. 7 cups) (2 to 2 1/2)|
|2 \N||Refrigerated ready-to-bake pie crusts for 9-inch pie|
In large bowl, combine ½ cup sugar, flour, cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg.
Add apples; toss to coat. Line 9-inch pie pan with one crust; fill with apple mixture. Moisten edge of crust with water; top with second crust.
Fold edge of top crust under bottom crust to seal; flute edge, using tines of fork to flatten or by pinching together tightly. Cut six 1-inch slits into top crust. Lightly brush top with water; sprinkle evenly with 1 tablespoon sugar. Bake at 450 degrees F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to
375 degrees F; bake an additional 30 to 40 minutes or until crust is golden brown, tenting with aluminum foil, if necessary, to prevent overbrowning.
Makes 1 pie
Tips: Tears in pie crust dough can be repaired by moistening edges, then pressing together.
To make decorations, cut apple and leaf shapes from additional pie crust.
Moisten bottoms with water; arrange on top of pie before baking.
