3/4 cup cold Land O Lakes® Butter cut into chunks
6 to 9 tablespoons cold water
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 medium (6 cups) tart cooking apples, peeled, cored, sliced 1/4-inch
1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter
Combine 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon sugar, salt, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg in bowl. Cut in 3/4 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in enough water with fork just until flour is moistened.
Divide dough in half; shape each half into ball. Flatten slightly. Wrap each ball of dough in plastic food wrap; refrigerate 30 minutes.
Heat oven to 400°F.
Roll out one ball of dough on lightly floured surface into 12-inch circle. Fold into quarters. Place dough into ungreased 9-inch pie plate; unfold dough, pressing firmly against bottom and sides. Trim crust to 1/2 inch from edge of pie plate; set aside.
Combine all filling ingredients except apples, 1 tablespoon butter and 1 teaspoon sugar in bowl. Add apples; toss lightly to coat. Spoon apple mixture into prepared crust.
Roll remaining ball of dough into 12-inch circle. Fold into quarters. Place dough over filling; unfold. Trim, seal and crimp or flute edge. Cut 5 or 6 large slits in crust. Brush with melted 1 tablespoon butter; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar. Cover edge of crust with 2-inch strip aluminum foil.
Bake 35 minutes; remove foil. Continue baking 10-20 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and juice begins to bubble through slits in crust. Cool pie 30 minutes; serve warm. Store refrigerated.

Amazing recipe! I never liked pie, especially fruit pies. But this is just amazing! I couldn't stop eating it!
I used a whole 2lb bag of small/medium Honey Crisp apples, also added about 2 tsp of vanilla and a stick of melted butter for the filling. Turned out so good!
Followed directions for the filling it come out perfect! We used store bought crust instead to save time.
We all know and love traditional Apple Pie, but that beloved treat comes in many shapes and sizes (squares, apple pie bars or hand pies) and flavors (raspberry, caramel apple pie or even maple.) The one thing they all share? The delicious taste of a baked apple, savored in any shape or flavor.
What do you see when bushels of bright, new apples start appearing in the markets? Are you dreaming of a classic apple pie — or maybe a strudel, a tart or dumplings with brandy sauce? How about all of the above?
