Old Fashioned Apple Pie

We love Susan Branches version - this came from her 2001 Recipe calendar)

Preheat oven to 450*

14 green apples, peeled, cored and sliced (if you buy larger apples you only have to use about 8 or so)
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. salt
3 1/2 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. butter

Combine all ingredients except butter. Pour into pie shell, piling high in the middle. Dot with butter. Cover with top crust. Cut out vents in top center. Bake on cookie sheet 10 minutes at 450*, reduce heat to 350* and bake 40-50 minutes longer until apples are tender and crust is brown.
