pastry for 2-crust pie, unbaked
Heat the oven to 425 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together the apples and sugar; mixing to coat.
Add the cornstarch, cinnamon, and nutmeg to the apple-sugar mixture; stir to mix well.
Turn the apple mixture into an unbaked pie shell. Dot with the 2 Tablespoons of butter.
Cover apple mixture with top crust. Seal and flute the edges. Cut slits in top of crust. Cover edges with foil to prevent over browning. Remove foil last 10-15 minutes of baking.
