Apple Pie by Alicia

I made my first Apple Pie yesterday and it turned out great!

Apple Pie

What you need:
- 1 box of Pillsbury Pie Crust (includes two pie crusts.. or you can make the crust from scratch if you have time!)
- 6 medium sized apples (skinned and cut into thin strips)
-  1 Tb.lemon juice
- 2 Tbs.flour
- 3/4 c.sugar
- 3/4 tsp.cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp.salt
- 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg

What to do:
1.Set oven to 425 degrees
2. Place one pie crust in pie pan (glass) and press into bottom with fingertips
3. In a large bowl, mix together apples, lemon, flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg

4. spoon mixture into pie crust

5. Top with second crust and press edges of two crusts together to seal.
6. Flute the edges of crust
7. Add slits to pie with knife
8. I added fork marks to crust for design, but you don't have to

Bake for 10 minutes and then take out to add foil pieces on top of crust so that it doesn't burn.. put back in oven for remaining time... about 40-45 min... check it often!

Let cool for atleast 1 hour
