MMMM Apple Pie



 I got lucky on Saturday and ended up with 20 pretty little apples for a total of $1!



My husband and I bought some things at True Value (the Hardware store) on Saturday and needed to spend one more dollar in order to be able to use a coupon we had so, I bought these 5 cents a piece apples to get us to $1. What a lucky find because we are really enjoying this apple pie! Here's the recipe I used if you want to make one too!

Crust- 2 frozen pie crusts

Filling-
6- cups thinly sliced, peeled apples (10 small apples)
1/2 cup Agave Nectar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon lemon juice

DIRECTIONS

Heat oven to 425°F. 
Mix Nectar, Flour, Cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, and lemon juice together in a big bowl with a whisk. Gently stir in apple slices making sure every apple slice is coated (i used my hands for this step).
Pour apple mixture into a thawed pie shell. Take 2nd pie shell and put on top of apple mixture, pressing the crusts together to seal the edge up. Cut 10-15 small slits on top of pie.
Bake 40 to 45 minutes until apples are tender and crust is golden.
Cover the edge of your crust with foil to keep the edge of your crust from burning (I kept the foil on the entire baking time and the crust was perfectly brown).
