Perfect Apple Pie

This is the apple pie I made for yummy!

1 box Pillsbury pie crusts
6 c. thinly sliced apples (6 med.-I like to use green apples)
3/4 c. sugar
2 T. flour
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 T. lemon juice

Heat oven to 425.  Place 1 pie crust in ungreased 9-inch pie plate.  Press firmly against side and bottom.  In a large bowl, gently mix all ingredients and spoon into crust.  Top with second crust.  Wrap excess tope crust under bottom crust edge, pressing edges together to seal.  Cut slits or shapes in several places in top crust.

Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown.  cover edge of crust with 2 to 3 inch wide strips of foil after first 15 to 20 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning.  cool on cooling rack at least 2 hours before serving.
