Prep time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 40 minutes
1 prepared 9-inch double-crust pie pastry, divided
3/4 cup Domino Light Brown Sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
2 pounds apples, cored, quartered, and sliced
1/4 teaspoon allspice
Preheat oven to 375 F. Line 9-inch pie pan with half pastry then prick bottom and sides with a fork.
In a large saucepot, combine brown sugar, flour, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Add apples and toss to coat evenly. Slowly heat over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves and apples begin to soften and cook down to about 6 cups.
Turn apple mixture into lined pie plate. Top with remaining pastry. Trim and flute edges with a fork. Slit top crust to allow steam to escape.
Bake 35-40 minutes, or until crust is golden.
Serve warm or at room temperature. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.
