- In another bowl, mix in the remaining flour, nutmeg, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Add this dry mix to the apples and mix well. Keep the apples aside to marinate for 10 minutes.
- Take out your pie crust base, put it on a pie tray then scoop the apple filling into it.
- Top it off with the top crust dough and seal the base.
- Press in edges of the pie crust to seal and poke a few holes on top with a knife. Decorate the edges with a fork’s tines with whatever design suits you.
