1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Pastry for double-crust pie (9 inches)
1 tablespoon butter
1 large egg white
Prep : 20 min.

1 ° In a small bowl, combine the sugars, flour and spices; set aside. In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Add sugar mixture; toss to coat.
2 ° Line a 9-in. pie plate with bottom crust; trim pastry even with edge. Fill with apple mixture; dot with butter. Roll out remaining pastry to fit top of pie. Place over filling. Trim, seal and flute edges. Cut slits in pastry.
3 ° Beat egg white until foamy; brush over pastry. Sprinkle with sugar. Cover edges loosely with foil.
4 ° Bake at 375° for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake 20-25 minutes longer or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.
