On lightly floured surface, roll out half of dough to a 12 inch
circle. Place in 9 inch pie plate. Spoon apple mixture into pie
shell, mounding high in center. Roll remaining dough into 12 inch
circle. Place over filling. Press edges together and roll up together
to form an even rim. Flute decoratively. Brush top of pastry with
water and sprinkle over all with 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar. Cut slits
in top of pie for steam to escape. Place pie on baking sheet and bake
30 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350 degrees F and continue to bake
45 minutes or until crust is golden brown and apples are bubbly. (if
