Granny's Delish Apple Pie

I found this recipe several years back and loved it for apple pies, it is simple and makes a really good APPLE (not fruit syrup and some pieces of apple) pie.

Gracias Pillsbury Dough Boy for sharin' the love!

Apple Pie (the cheatin' easy way):

1 15 oz Pillsbury box pie crusts (2 of them are in there)
6-8 apples (I usually use 3/4 granny smith and a few golden delish to round out the mix)
3/4 c sugar (I don't use this much)
2 Tbsp flour
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ginger (optional)
1 Tbsp lemon juice
Raisins and pecans optional

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
2. Cut/slice up apples (skin them if you like, I don't), place in a big bowl with lemon juice and sugar...set aside.
3. Place bottom pie crust in a pie pan and bake in oven for 10 min or so
4. Mix rest of the ingredients together and mix up well with the apples
5. Dump it all in the bottom pie crust, spread it out evenly
6. Cover with the top unbaked pie crust (you can cut cute shapes in it or just poke some holes)
7. Pinch down the edges with a fork to make that nice little edge design
8. Bake for 40-50min (I promise it will bake down a BUNCH)
9. Remove, let cool and eat it all up with some vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce!
