  1. For crust, add 2 cups (500 mL) flour in medium bowl. Cut in Becel® salted margarine sticks with pastry blender or two knives until coarse crumbs form. Add 4 to 5 Tbsp. (60 to 75 mL) ice water, 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) at a time, until dough forms. Knead dough with floured hands and shape into two discs, one slightly larger than the other. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Preheat baking sheet. Unwrap larger disc of dough and roll on floured* surface from center to edges to form 13-in. (33 cm) circle. Press into 9-in. (23 cm) pie plate; set aside.
  3. For filling, combine 1/4 cup (60 mL) granulated sugar, brown sugar, remaining 1/4 cup (60 mL) flour and cinnamon in large bowl. Add apples; toss until coated. **Unwrap remaining pie dough and roll on lightly floured surface to form 10-in. (25 cm) circle. Cut decorative vent holes, if desired; or weave a lattice. Carefully place the pastry over the apples. Brush with milk and sprinkle with remaining 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) granulated sugar.
  4. Arrange pie on heated baking sheet and bake 10 minutes. Decrease oven to 375°F (190°C). Bake 1 hour or until juices are bubbling. Cover with foil if top gets too brown. Cool on wire rack.
