Assemble the pie:

  1. Roll out each dough disc, and cut into circles that are just a little bigger than your pie dish.
  2. Press one crust into the bottom of a pie dish, then pour in apple mixture.
  3. Top apples with a sprinkling of more brown sugar and cinnamon (how much is up to you, I did just a small sprinkle)
  4. Cover pie with your second crust, and pinch around the edge with a fork to seal the crust. Slice a small slit in the middle of your pie top to vent.
  5. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
