Deep Dish Apple Pie
6-8 medium cooking apples (MacIntosh, Spy or Cortland) - more if you want a higher pie
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp nutmeg
3 tbsp corn starch
1 tbsp lemon juice
1-2 tbsp butter
Prepare pastry for a two crust pie.
Peel and core apples, then slice thinly. Mix with above ingredients (except butter) and pour into unbaked deep dish pie shell. Dab the top of the filling with a tablespoon or two of butter then top with crust.
Bake at 450 F for 10 minutes then reduce heat to 350 F and bake for approximately 4o minutes or until filling is cooked. (Tip ~ To keep your pie crust from overcooking, cover it lightly with foil after 20-30 minutes.)
Serve still warm with vanilla ice cream.
