- 1 Pillsbury Pie Crust
- 3 apples
- 5 TBSP sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 4 cups water
- 3 TBSP sugar
- 2 TBSP lemon juice
Wash the apples, cut in half and core them. Then slice in very thin slices, slightly smaller than 1/8 inch.
In a saucepan, bring the 4 cups water, sugar and lemon juice to a boil and place the apple slices in.
Boil for 2 minutes, or until the slices soften and you can easily bend them.
Strain apples into colander and let dry on paper towels for a few minutes.
Prepare your work surface by lightly sprinkling it with some flour or just use a silicone mat and lay the pie crust down.
With a pastry cutter (or knife), cut long strips, approximately 1/2 inch wide.
In a bowl mix the zest, sugar and cinnamon and nutmeg. and evenly spread it over the pie crust.
Preheat the oven to 425 F.
Place apples on the strips, overlapping them so they do not fall out.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake for 25 minutes, or until nicely golden.
