Homemade Apple Pie

Crust for 2 crust pie.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees

6 cups peeled sliced apples - I used Granny Smith tossed with 1 TBSP lemon juice (prevents browning of the apples)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 TBSP flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
Stir together 

Place bottom crust into pie plate. Carefully push crust into plate without air pockets. Don't trim yet! Next, carefully place apples in pie plate mounding up slightly in center. Dot with 2 TBSP Land O Lakes butter. Carefully cover with top crust, positioned as evenly as possible. Next, trim excess crust and crimp edges. Cut vent holes in decorative pattern.  Cover edges with aluminum foil. Bake for 25 minutes with edges covered, then remove foil and bake 25-35 minutes more until nicely browned.

 During last 10 minutes, remove from oven carefully, brush crust with a little melted butter and sprinkle with a little sugar. Finish browning pie. Remove and cool and enjoy!
