Core the apples and cut them into ¼ inch slices.
Using a knife, peel the apple slices and place them in a large bowl.
Take 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and sprinkle over the apple slices. Combine the apple slices with a spoon to ensure that the juice is covering all slices.
In a separate bowl, stir together sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg until well combined.
Pour the mixture over the apple slices and mix well until all the apple slices are well coated.
Transfer the apple mixture to the pastry-lined pie plate.
Place on the top crust and cut slits in pastry and crimp edges as desired. Expert Tip: You can also lattice the top crust or use a pie crust mold.
Brush the top layer of the crust with milk and evenly sprinkle on 1 teaspoon of sugar. This gives the crust a nice brown topping. Important Note: To prevent over browning, cover edge of the crust with foil or use an edge cover.
Bake at 375°F for 40 minutes.
Remove foil or pie edge cover and cook for an additional 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow the pie to completely cool on a wire rack.
Once cooled, serve topped with your favorite vanilla ice cream.
