Turn the dough out onto a floured surface, and knead into a ball.

Divide the dough into half, wrap each half with a clean plastic wrap and put in the fridge.

In a large bowl, add all the ingredients, and gently toss until well combined.

Place the fruit filling into the crust.

Roll the other dough out into a 12-inch circle.

Place it on top of the fruit filling, fold top of pastry under bottom pastry.

Flute the edge, trim off the extra dough around the edges. Cut the slits in several places.

Place the pan on a cookie sheet during the baking.

Bake at 400℉ (200℃) for about 55 minutes or until the apples are tender and crust is golden.

Serve warm, at room temperature or chilled with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream if desired.

TIP: Cover the edge of the pie crust with some foil during last 10 to 15 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning.
