- Roll 1/2 the pastry on floured surface into circle 1-inch larger than inverted 9-inch pie plate. Ease pastry into plate.
- Combine cornstarch, Equal®, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Sprinkle over apples in large bowl and toss to coat. Arrange apples in pie crust.
- Roll remaining pastry into circle large enough to fit top of pie. Place over apples. Seal edges, trim and flute. Cut a few slits in top of pastry to allow steam to escape. Bake in preheated 400°F oven 40 to 50 minutes or until crust is golden and apples are tender.
