Apple Pie

1 recipe of pie crust (2 crusts)

8 to 10 Gravenstein or Granny Smith apples--you want a nice tart cooking apple
1 cup of brown sugar
1 tbl. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. freshly ground nutmeg
Pinch of salt
1 tsp. lemon juice

Line a 9 inch pie plate with pie crust dough. 

Peel and thinly slice the apples. Toss them in a bowl with the sugar (depending on the tartness of your apples you may need more or less than a cup of sugar), flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and lemon juice. 

Place the apples in the pie plate. Dot with butter. Top with the rest of the pie crust dough. Brush the top crust with some milk and sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar, if you wish.

Preheat the oven to 400˚. Place the pie in the center of the oven and put some aluminum foil on the shelf beneath the one with the pie on it (not on the same shelf). This will catch any drips. 

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until the crust is nicely golden.
