2 premade pie crusts, (or 2 homemade pie crusts, see Homemade Pie Crust)

10-11 peeled, cored and sliced Golden Delicious Apples (about 7 cups)

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

3/4 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. salt

1 (12 oz.) can frozen 100% apple juice (we used Seneca brand)

6 Tbsp. corn starch

1/2 cup water

1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

1 egg

1 Tbsp. water

Directions:

Preheat oven to 425༠F.

In a small saucepan, heat frozen apple juice over medium-high heat until boiling.  Meanwhile in a small bowl whisk together water and 2 Tbsp. corn starch.  Slowly add cornstarch mixture to boiling apple juice, bring back to a boil and whisk until clear and thickened, about 2-3 minutes.  Remove from heat an allow to cool.

In a large bowl, combine apple slices, lemon juice, cinnamon, and salt and toss well to evenly coat the apples.  Pour cooled apple juice mixture over apples and toss again.

Meanwhile, in a glass pie pan, place one premade pie crust.  Add 1 Tbsp. flour and distribute evenly onto bottom crust with the back of a spoon.  Pour apple filling into crust.  Cover with top crust, seal and flute edges.  Cut vent into center of top crust.

In a small bowl whisk together egg and 1 Tbsp. water.  Using a pastry brush, coat the top crust with the egg wash.

Bake for 45 minutes until crust is golden brown.  Remove from oven and allow to cool to room temperature, about 1 1/2 hours. Serve with a small scoop of  sugar-free vanilla ice cream.
