   be prepared 3 days ahead. Keep refrigerated. Soften dough slightly at room
   temperature before rolling.)
   For Filling: Position rack in lowest third of oven and preheat to 400~. In
   large bowl, toss apples with 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar, flour, lemon
   juice, cinnamon nutmeg, lemon peel, mace, cloves and allspice. Roll out 1
   dough disk on lightly floured surface to 12 diameter round. Transfer to 9

   apples. Trim dough overhang to 1”; reserve scraps. Fold top crust edge
   under bottom crust edge, pressing to seal. Crimp edge decoratively. Reroll
   pastry scraps and cut out leaf shapes. Brush 1 side of each leaf with milk
   and arrange, milk side down, decoratively atop crust. Cut several slits in
   crust to allow steam to escape. Brush crust with milk; sprinkle with
   remaining 1 teaspoon sugar. Place pie on baking sheet. Bake until crust is
   golden brown and juices bubble, covering crust edges with aluminum foil if
   browning too quickly, about 1 hour 10 minutes. Transfer pie to rack and
