Ingredients

sugar 1/2 cup
packed brown sugar 1/2 cup
all-purpose flour 3 tablespoons
ground cinnamon 1 teaspoon
ground ginger 1/4 teaspoon
ground nutmeg 1/4 teaspoon
thinly sliced peeled tart apples 6 to 7 cups
lemon juice 1 tablespoon
Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
butter 1 tablespoon
egg white 1 large
Additional sugar

An apple pie is a pie in which the principal filling ingredient is apple. It is often served with whipped cream, ice cream, or cheddar cheese. It is generally double-crusted, with pastry both above and below the filling; the upper crust may be solid or latticed.

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the sugars, flour and spices; set aside. In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Add sugar mixture; toss to coat.
  2. Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust; trim even with edge. Fill with apple mixture; dot with butter. Roll remaining crust to fit top of pie; place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in crust.
  3. Beat egg white until foamy; brush over crust. Sprinkle with sugar. Cover edges loosely with foil.
  4. Bake at 375° for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly, 20-25 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
