Roll 1 disk out on lightly floured surface to 12-inch round. Roll dough up on rolling pin and transfer to 9-inch Pyrex pie plate. Trim edges. Spoon filling evenly into crust, mounding slightly in center. Roll second disk out on lightly floured surface to 12 inch round. Roll up on rolling pin and transfer to top of apples.

Trim edges to 3/4 -inch overhang. Turn top edge under bottom. Crimp edges decoratively. Cut several slits in crust to allow steam to escape. Place pie on heavy baking sheet. Stir remaining 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon to combine in small bowl. Sprinkle over top of crust. Bake until pie is golden brown, juices bubble thickly in center and apples are tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
