5 medium size Granny Smith apples (organic, you can leave the peel on for extra fiber)

1tsp freshly graded nutmeg
2 pie crusts (store bought or homemade)
1-2 tbsp butter

Wash and scrub apples
Roughly cut apples into small cubes and toss with the rest of ingredients. Make sure that each piece is well coated in the mix. If you don't have a specific spice, just add more of what you have on hand (for example, no nutmeg, substitute for more cinnamon).
Use one pie crust for the bottom of the pie, fill it up with the apple mix
Use one pie crust for the top, make sure that the edges are sealed well.
Pierce top pie crust a few times with a fork to allow for steam to come out
Lightly spread butter on top crust (omit if not using)
Bake for 25-30 min until the edges are crisp.
Let the apple pie cool down for 5-10min and then serve with ice cream or with a nice cup of herbal tea.
