Roll out both crusts first. Mix sugar, flour, spices. Mix in apples. Cut up butter and dot over filling before covering with top crust. Slit and seal crust. Bake at 425 degrees for 30 minutes, protecting the edges of the crust (with tin foil). Increase oven to 450, remove tin foil, bake approx. 15 more minutes.


Using more than one kind of apples usually helps. I used McIntosh and, um, something else in this pie, and left some of them unpeeled.
