Apple Pie

What you need:

  • 1 package refrigerated rolled piecrusts (2 per package, 15 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons corn strach
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch ground cloves
  • 2 pounds Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored
  • 2 pounds Fuji apples, peeled and cored
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 large egg, beaten with 1 tablespoons water

What you do:

  • Heat oven to 400°F. Unroll one piecrust onto a work surface. Roll out slightly with rolling pin to 12 inches. Fit into bottom and up side of a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate. Prick bottom of crust with a fork; refrigerate while assembling filling.
  • In a small bowl, blend 1/2 cup of the granulated sugar, the light-brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, salt and cloves. Set aside.
  • Cut apples into 1/2-inch pieces. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add apples, lemon juice and sugar mixture. Cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pan juices thicken. Cool on a rack for 25 minutes.
  • Pour cooled apple mixture into prepared crust-lined pie plate. Unroll second pie crust and roll out slightly to 12 inches. Cut 1-inch vent hole in center of dough. Transfer dough to pie, centering over filling. Crimp edge together and flute decoratively.
  • Brush pie with egg mixture; sprinkle with remaining 1 teaspoon granulated sugar. Bake at 400°F for 20 minutes, then reduce temperature to 350°F and bake an additional 25 minutes. Cover pie with foil if it browns too quickly. Cool at least 1 hour before slicing and serving.
