Easy Deep-Dish Apple Pie

My 11-year old likes to make this on her own.
  • 6 cups peeled and sliced apples
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 double-recipe pie crust
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Toss apple slices gently with lemon juice. Mix sugars, flour and spices, add to apples. Pour into pie-pan lined with bottom crust, top with the remaining crust, seal edges and cut four slits in top crust. Cover edge of top crust with foil to prevent over-browning. Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes; reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for 30 minutes more. Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
