   In saucepan, bring cider to boil and reduce to about
   1/2 cup. Cool about 20 minutes.
   Crust: mix together cider and water. In processor, mix
   together flour and butter. Pulse off and on until
   coarse crumbs form. With motor running, add
   water-cider mixture. Process just until dough leaves
   side of bowl. Gather dough into a ball. Divide in
   half. Flatten each into a disk & wrap in plastic wrap.
   Chill about 30-45 minutes. Filling: in bowl, mix
   together sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add apples
   to sugar mixture and toss to coat well. Sprinkle
   reduced apple cider over all and toss to coat well.
   Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. 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 top crust begins to brown too quickly,
   cover loosely with a piece of foil.) Cool on wire
   rack. Serve warm.
