8 Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced (or a bag of frozen, peeled and sliced apples)
1 1/2 to 2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 sheets refrigerated pie crust
3/4 stick butter, cut into small pieces
1/4 stick butter, melted
1. Place sliced apples in a large bowl.
2. In a small bowl combine brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and flour until well combined. Pour over sliced apples and toss until well coated.
3. Cover apple mixture and refrigerate overnight to let the spices permeate the apples.
4. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter and lightly flour the bottom of a large baking dish.
5. Roll out 3 pie crusts as thin as possible. Layer the bottom of the baking dish with 1 1/2 of the crusts, letting crust hang over sides of dish.
6. Pour apples, with accumulated juice into crust; dot evenly with small pieces of butter.
7. Cover top with remaining 1 1/2 pie crust, folding and pinching crust together around edges. Cut steam vents in top crust; brush liberally with melted butter.
8. Place cobbler in oven, reduce temperature to 300 degrees and bake for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until crust is deep golden brown and apples are tender when pierced with a knife.
9. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
