Ingredients:  
4 apples peeled, cored and diced (4c.) (my favorite is Granny Smith)
1/2 c. plus 1 1/2 tsp. sugar
4 1/2 tsp. corn starch
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of ground cloves
1 T. lemon juice
1 recipe of Grandma's Pie Crust (or your favorite pie crust)
1 T. unsalted butter
1 T. milk

Directions:
Directions:
Heat oven to 400. Combine apples, 1/2 c. of the sugar, corn starch, 1/4 tsp. of the cinnamon, cloves and lemon juice. Toss to combine, set aside.

Prepare pie crust with 1/4 tsp. cinnamon blended in. (if using a premade crust, sprinkle the cinnamon over crust) Place bottom crust in a pie pan.

Put apple mixture on pie crust. Cut butter and place on top of the apple mixture. Lay top crust over apples and crimp edges to seal. Take a strip of tin foil and put around edges of crust so it won't get too brown or even burn. Cut a few vent holes in crust. Brush crust with milk and sprinkle with remaining sugar.

Bake at 400 for 10 minutes, then reduce oven to 350 and bake for 45-50 minutes.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I like to grab a little leaf cookie cutter and use that to make the vent holes before I put the crust on. Then I use the cut out leaves for decoration on top of the pie crust.
