5 medium size apples – Granny Smith or Golden Delicious work great
1/2 cup brown sugar. White sugar will also work
- 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Pre-heat oven to 425°F.
Using a pizza stone or large baking sheet, place pie crust and roll flat to about 10 inches. In large bowl, gently mix filling ingredients; spoon into center of pie crust. Fold crust up around the edges of the apples, rustic style.
Bake for 15 minutes at 425°F, then reduce heat to 350°F for another 20-30 minutes or until crust is is golden brown.
