- Bring Cider to a boil, add sugar mixed with cinnamon and nutmeg. Add apples.
- Cook slowly, uncovered, until apples are tender, turning occasionally to keep them covered with syrup. Apples should retain their shape.
- Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry and bake shell about ten minutes in hot oven (450 degrees). Lift apples carefully from syrup and place in baked shell.
- Mix corn starch to a paste with cold water; cook until syrup thickens. Add lemon juice pour over apples. Put strips of pastry lattice-fashion over top and bake at 450 degrees until nicely browned.
