  • turn apple mixture into pastry lined pie plate
  • Mounding up in center to support top pie crust...
  • Spuinkle with lemon peel
  • Dot apples with butter in small pieces
  • Roll out top pastry intp a 12 inch circle.. fold in quarters and make vents for steam
  • Let sit for a minute while you ..
  • with sissors trim overhanging pastry of bottom crust to measure 1/2 inch from rim of plate
  • Place top and cut so it is hanging 1 inch over pie plate..
  • Poisten edge of BOTTOM crust with water
  • Fold top over bottom
  • with fingers press to seal edges.
  • press upright to form a rim
  • Crimp all the way around with a decorative pinch...
  • Mix yolk with 1 tablespoon water
  • Brush on crust
  • bake for 45=50 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden.
  • If it starts to brown to fast... Put a strip of foil all the way around the edges only... I do this at the start... and take if off about 3/4 way through the cooking time.... If you put it on loose... You can leave it on and it still browns nicly..
  • I hope you try this pie... and enjoy it!

    Another missed one - I'll be making this for John and pie is his fave, and I love anything with apples this time of year when the apples are fresh and crisp and plentiful around here...this sounds fantastic (I like the brown sugar and hint of lemon!).
