1Juice lemons in small bowl, set aside.
2Peal apples and remove core. Slice apples as thin as possible. Place in a large mixing bowl.
Coat apples with the lemon juice to prevent discoloring.
3Sprinkle corn starch over apples and gently toss.
4Sprinkle 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 tsp. apple pie spice over apples and toss to evenly coat (may want more spice depending on your own taste).
5In a medium sized mixing bowl, add flour, the remaining sugars and pie spice (again you may want to add more spice if needed).
6Cut in butter. Use a pastry cutter to mix crumb mixture until pea sized balls form.
7Dump apples into pie crust.
8Completely cover apples with crumb mixture.
9Bake 375 degree for 50mins.
DO NOT TAKE OUT OF OVEN. TURN OFF AFTER 50mins. AND LET COOL IN OVEN ATLEAST 3hrs.
***you may want to cover your crust with aluminum foil to prevent burning***
