Adventures In Pie Making: Traditional Apple Pie!

I've made apple pie a few times before, but it was always the Dutch Apple kind.

I decided recently that since I cheat a bit and use store bought crust, I finally HAD to give Traditional Apple Pie a shot - you know, the one with two crusts: one on bottom and one on top.  The crust was always my problem and what held me back in the past. I've always had problems when making my own pie crust, so for now I stick to the wonderful store bough refrigerated dough. I don't cheat COMPLETELY and use the frozen pie shells. 

Now that I'm done rambling, let me show you this AMZING pie!!!

The Goods:
6 Apples (I used 5 Granny Smith and 1 Pink Lady)
3/4 C Sugar
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
Zest and Juice of 1 Lemon
Extra Sugar
