- 2 9- inch single pie crusts
- 5 cups Granny Smith apples peeled, cored & thinly sliced
- ½ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup sugar

In a large mixing bowl add flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and salt. Whisk until well blended.
Add thinly sliced apples, zest, and juices to sugar mixture & toss until all apple slices are coated. Let sit for 15 minutes, until apples release their juices.
