Adjust oven racks to the two lowest positions; heat oven to 425 deg.
Prepare the pie plate as directed on the pie crust package for a 2-crust filled pie.
Peel, core, and thinly slice the apples. In a large bowl, combine the apples and the remaining ingredients; mix well and spoon into prepared crust. Top with the second pie crust, and tuck and crimp the edges. Use a sharp knife to make 6 cuts in the top to let steam escape.
Place the pie on the top-most rack and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and apples are crisp-tender. Cover the pie with foil during cooking if the top gets too brown. Cool and it let rest at room temperature for at least 45 minutes before serving.
