Only recently have I started to appreciate a good apple pie.  I like the apples to have some texture, in a sweet cinnamon sauce that’s not too runny, a flakey crust, and a nice crumble top.

Then make some pie dough, I use the same one all the time (ex. Strasberry Pie). Throw it in the fridge until you’re ready to roll.

In a large bowl combine apples and the glaze.

2/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
8 cups sliced apples
 
Toss it around until evenly coated.

Mix by hand until crumbly.

Add the crumble to the top of the pie, and throw it in the oven on the medium rack at 425. Check on it periodically and once the top is golden, add foil to eliminate burning. Should take 40-50 minutes.
