Preheat oven to 450F.

Line pie pan with unbaked pie crust, trim pastry, crimp to edge of pie plate.  Fill pie crust with apple mixture and dot with softened butter.  Brush crust edge with water and place pie crust top on top of pie, crimp to the bottom crust.  Make some slits in the top crust for the steam to escape.  Bake for 10 minutes.

SJ Note 14 Oct 2009: This came out entirely too liquidy for my taste, but I'm not sure if it was the apples (the sort (Bramley) or the particular ones), or the recipe.  Might try it again sometime, probably with Granny Smith apples if I do.
