No matter if you are surrounding the dessert table, cooking something new, or just want something for yourself, here is a great apple pie recipe from McCormick that will make your Thanksgiving something to remember.

Here are the Ingredients that are required:

1 package (14.1 ounces) refrigerated pie crust (2 crusts)
½ cup of sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 ½ pounds apple (Granny Smith, Golden Delicious, or any apple of your choice) peeled and thinly sliced. You will need about four apples.
1 tablespoon butter
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon water

1. Once you’ve gathered your ingredients this is the recipe to follow in order to create the apple pie of your dreams.

2. Preheat the oven to 400° F. Prepare pie crust by using a 9-inch pie plate.

3. Mix sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Sprinkle that over the apples in a large bowl; toss to coat well. Spoon into a pastry-lined pie plate, and dot it with butter.

4. After filling the first pie crust, take the second pie crust out of the pan and put it on top of the first pie crust.

5. Seal and press the edges. Cut small slits in the top crust. Mix egg white and water in a small bowl and brush the pie crust with the egg wash and sprinkle with additional sugar, if desired.
Bake the pie for 45-50 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack.

KITCHEN TIP: After 15-20 minutes of baking, cover the edge of the crust with strips of foil to prevent excessive browning.
