Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 1 hour
Total Time: 3 hours, 20 minutes
400g pie crust dough, 30g plain flour, 65g sugar, 75g brown sugar, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, ¼ tsp ground nutmeg, 1 tbsp lemon juice, 875g Granny Smith apples peeled and thinly sliced, 1 tbsp unsalted butter cubed, and 1 egg beaten.
Sugar and cinnamon optional
Preheat your oven to 190°C.
Lightly flour your work surface and roll half of the dough into a ⅛ inch thick circle. Then transfer the dough to a 9-inch pie plate. Place the plate in the fridge to chill while you prepare the apple filling.
Combine flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a small bowl and set aside. Then, in a large bowl add apples, and lemon juice, and toss. Now, add the flour mixture and toss to coat evenly. Add the filling to the pie crust in layers, discard any juices, and evenly dot the apple mixture with butter.
Now, roll out the remaining crust dough into a ⅛ inch thick circle and place it on over the filling, ensuring that it covers the filling completely. Using a sharp knife, trim off any excess dough, seal the dough, and flute it using your fingers. Cut 4 slits on the top of the pie to allow the steam to vent, and place the pie on a baking sheet.
Brush the surface of your apple pie with egg wash. Optional, sprinkle sugar and cinnamon on top of the pie. Using either a pie shield or kitchen foil, cover the edges of the pie to prevent them from browning in the first 25 minutes of cooking
Bake for 25 minutes and then remove from the oven and discard the shield or kitchen foil, then cook for a further 35 minutes until the top of the pie is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool at room temperature for at least 2 hours.
