6 cups thinly sliced, peeled cooking apples (about 2 1/4 pounds)
1 Tbsp. lemon juice (optional)
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. all purpose flour
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 cup raisins or chopped walnuts (optional)

If desired, sprinkle apples with lemon juice. In a large mixing bowl stir together sugar, flour, cinnamon, & nutmeg. Add apples and if desired, raisins or walnuts. Gently toss till coated.

Transfer apple mixture to the pastry lined pie plate. Trim pastry to edge of pie plate. Cut slits in remaining pastry; place on filling and seal. Crimp edges as desire.

To prevent over-browning, cover edge of pie with foil. Bake in a 375º oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 25-30 minutes more or till top is golden brown. Cool on wire rack.
