Southern Plates Apple Pie Recipe

1 - Package Pillsbury Pie Crusts
9-10 apples, two different kinds, one Granny Smith Apple
(I used golden Delicious + 1 Granny Smith)
1/4 C Apple Juice
2 T Lemon Juice
3/4 C Sugar
1/4 C Corn Starch
dash of salt
1 tsp Vanilla
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 -1/2 tsp allspice

Preheat oven to 425. Roll one pie crust out into pie plate. Peel and chip apples into large mixing bowl. In separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients and stir to blend. Combine all liquid ingredients in another bowl and stir to blend. Pour dry and liquid over apples and stir well. Spoon apples into prepared crust. Wet your fingers and wipe around the edge of the crust before unrolling your other crust on top. Press to seal around edges. After you have sealed them together, fold the edges over and crimp them with your fingers. Cut a few slits on the top with a knife. Melt some butter and brush it over the crust then sprinkle a bit of sugar on top. Place in oven and bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and cover entire pie with foil (leaving center open, see above picture). You just want the outer edge covered (to prevent it from burning). Reduce heat to 375 and continue baking for 45-55 minutes or until golden brown.
