How to Make Apple Pie

Step-by-Step

    3) Peel, core and cut the apples into 1/4 inch slices. Place in a bowl and toss with lemon juice.

    4) Combine the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.

    5) Layer half of the apple slices in the chilled pie shell and sprinkle with half of the sugar mixture. Repeat the layers. Cut the butter into small pieces and sprinkle over apples.

    7) Brush with the milk and sprinkle with the granulated sugar.

    8) Bake in the middle of the oven for 50-60 minutes. If the edges of the crust starts to brown too quickly, cover with strips of foil. Let cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
