  • In a large bowl, toss apple slices with lemon juice, brown sugar, cornstarch, brandy, cinnamon, vanilla and salt. Stir until apples are evenly coated. Sprinkle in raisins and stir to combine.

  • Spoon the apple mixture into pie crust. Cut remaining pie crust into 1-inch strips and weave in a criss-cross pattern over the filling. Fold ends under pie crust and crimp.

  • Brush egg wash over the pie strips; sprinkle with granulated sugar.

  • Bake at 425°F for 55 minutes. If edges start to get too browned, cover with foil. Remove from oven and cool completely before slicing and serving.
