4 lbs. granny smith apples, peeled, cored, and very thinly sliced
3/4 c. chopped walnuts (optional)
1/2 c. sugar, plus 2 tsp.
1/2 c. packed light brown sugar
2 tbl. lemon juice
2 tbl. flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tbl. milk or half and half
2 tbl. cold butter, cut into slivers

Preheat oven to 375. In a large bowl, combine the apples, walnuts, 1/2 c. sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Coat the apples with the lemon juice and then toss with the sugar mixture to coat. Let sit for 10 minutes. Spoon the apple mixture into the pie crust and dot the fruit with butter slivers. Top with the second crust. Cut away excess dough and crimp the sides. Cut a decorative pattern of slits into the top crust. With a pastry brush, brush the milk over the top crust, and then sprinkle the remaining 2 tsp. of sugar over the top.

Bake until the crust is golden and the juices begin to bubble, about 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 1/2 hour before serving.
