Make It

Step 1
Place apple slices in a large bowl. Add water until slices are covered; add juice from lemon.
Step 2
Whisk together brown sugar, flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Drain apple slices; add sugar mixture to apples. Mix until apples are evenly coated.
Step 3
Line 9-inch pie plate with one pie crust. Press onto bottom and up side, leaving a ½-inch overhang.
Step 4
Place dulce de leche in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 35 seconds or until soft enough to spread.
Step 5
Arrange one-third of apple slices in a circular pattern in pie crust. Spread ½ cup dulce de leche over apples. Arrange another third of apples; spread another ½ cup dulce de leche over apples. Top with remaining apples; spread remaining dulce de leche over apples.
Step 6
Cover pie with second crust, pinching edges together. Cut a few vent holes in top of pie.
Step 7
Beat egg and water in small bowl; brush crust with egg mixture. Mix granulated sugar and remaining ½ teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl; sprinkle over crust. Place pie on baking sheet.
Step 8
Bake at 400° F for 10 minutes. Reduce temperature to 350° F; bake for an additional 30 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
