  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. In large bowl, combine apple slices and lemon juice. In a small bowl, combine sugar, flour and cinnamon. Sprinkle sugar mixture over apples slices; mix well to coat.
  3. Gently unroll both pie crusts. Line pie pan with one crust; fill with apple mixture. Use leaf cutter to cut shapes out of second crust at least 1 inch away from edge. Place top crust over filling.
  4. Lightly flour Pie Crust Mold. Roll scraps into logs (about ½ in. thick) and press into rope mold cavity. Use a spatula to trim off excess dough to be level with the mold. Press dough down again, if needed. Carefully remove dough from mold. In small bowl, lightly beat 1 egg with 2 tablespoons water. Brush edge of pie crust with egg wash and apply molded pie dough to crust. Repeat until edge of crust is decorated. Place on cookie sheet and bake 40-45 minutes or until crust is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool before serving.
