  1. Roll out half the pie dough to about 2 inches wider than your pie dish, place it in the bottom of an ungreased pie plate, and refrigerate.
  2. Place the apples, sugar, flour, lemon juice, spices, and salt in a large bowl and toss to coat evenly.

  3. Fill the chilled pie shell with the apple mixture, working carefully to mound the apples evenly and with as few empty spaces between apple slices as possible.
  4. Dot with butter and refrigerate.
  5. Roll out the second disk of pie dough, (large enough to overhang the sides of the pie by at least an inch), and drape the dough over the pie, pressing lightly to conform to the shape of the apples.
  6. Trim off any excess dough, leaving about a one inch margin all around the pie.
  7. Roll the top and bottom crusts up and over, pinching together to seal, and crimp.

  8. Cut steam vents in the top crust with a sharp knife or kitchen shears, brush with egg wash, and garnish with raw sugar.

  9. Refrigerate the pie for 15 to 20 minutes.

  10. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  11. Bake the pie for 45 to 60 minutes, or until the crust is golden, the juices are bubbling, and the apples are softened but still a little firm (not mushy).

  12. Cool the pie for at least an 2 hours before slicing.
