Let stand for 5 minutes. Spoon apples over nut filling. Dot with butter. Moisten pastry edge with water. Cover with top crust. Fold top edge under bottom crust. Flute with fingers or fork. Cut slits or design in top crust or prick with fork to release steam while baking. Bake at 425 degrees for 55 minutes. Cover the edge of pie with foil to prevent burning.
