DIRECTIONS
  1. If apples lack tartness, sprinkle with 1 Tbsp lemon juice, if desired. Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. (For a very juicy pie, omit the flour)
  2. Add sugar mixture to the sliced apples; toss to coat fruit.
  3. Fill a pastry-lined 9 inch pie plate with apple mixture; dot with butter. Adjust top crust. Seal and flute edge. Sprinkle some sugar on top, if desired.
