Prep Time30minutes minutes Cook Time1hour hour Servings8 Ingredients 4 large firm, tart apples 1/3 cup sugar 1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar 3 tablespoons cornstarch 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg 1 (14.1-ounce) box premade refrigerated pie crusts (2 count) 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small cubes Instructions Preheat the oven to 450°F. Peel, core, and slice the apples into 1/8-inch slices. Add the apples to a large bowl. In a small bowl, whisk the sugar, brown sugar, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg together. Sprinkle over the apples and toss to coat the apples in the sugar mixture. Allow the pie crusts to come to room temperature then gently unroll one crust to cover the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie dish. Trim off the excess crust around the edges. Add the apples and any juice from the bowl into the crust. Spread the apples out evenly in the crust. Sprinkle the butter over the apples. Gently unroll the other crust and place it centered over the pie dish. Fold any overhang under the edge of the bottom crust and pinch together to seal. Crimp to form a decorative edge. Cut 3 to 4 3-inch slits in the top of the pie to allow it to vent. Place the pie on a rimmed baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for 10 minutes at 450°F then reduce the heat to 350°F and bake for an additional 50 minutes. If the edges brown too quickly, cover them with strips of aluminum foil. Allow the pie to cool completely, 2 to 3 hours, before slicing. The filling will thicken as it cools. Serve slightly warmed with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, if desired.
