6 cups thinly sliced, peeled cooking apples (about 2.5 lbs)
3?4 cup sugar
2 TBS minute tapioca
1?2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1?8 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 pie crust (unbaked)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl stir together the sugar, minute tapioca, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add apple slices. Gently toss until coated.
Transfer apple mixture to the pastry-lined pie plate. Trim bottom pastry to edge of pie plate. Place remaining pastry on filling, trim and seal. Cut slits in the top for filling to vent during cooking.
Brush top pastry with milk and sprinkle with additional sugar. To prevent over-browning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake for 40 minutes. Remove foil. Bake 20 minutes more or until fruit is tender and filling is bubbly. Cool on wire rack.
