A Pie Perfect for Ice Cream!

Can you tell I love Chickens in the Road yet?
This pie is from Suzanne's cookbook, you can find the original Here!
She has pictures of the whole process up too!!

This is how mine turned out!

Here is the recipe:

9 cups (3 pounds) sliced apples
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 cup dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Peel, core, and slice apples.

Place in a large bowl. After the first several cups of sliced apples are in the bowl, add the tablespoon of lemon juice and stir it up. This will keep the apples from browning while you’re slicing the rest. Once all the apples are in the bowl, add the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Stir well to blend. Line a deep dish pie plate with the pastry. Fill it up with the filling! Put the top crust on, crimping edges. Cut slits to vent. Brush the top with a little bit of egg white if you like and sprinkle with sugar.Suzzane suggests sprinkling turbinado sugar on top, so of course I did. :)

Bake on the lowest oven rack–20 minutes at 425-degrees, then another 20-25 minutes at 375-degrees.

Let me know if you try this recipe! I would love to see your picture!!!
