Step #3

After preparing two pastry crust,  peeled, sliced  and core 9 to 12 medium sized apples.

You can peel and sliced the apples by hand or use on these old fashion core, peeling, slicing gadgets to do most of the work.[Image]

As you can see by this photo,  our apple tree which is not domesticated but left on it's own bears apples that are very small.  So,  we needed about 20 small apples to fill a 12 inch pie dish.
