In a small bowl, combine sugar, spices, and salt together.
In a large bowl, add sliced apples and pour the lemon juice on to the apples. Mix well.
Toss the apples with the spice mixture and set aside.
In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the fruit and cook until the sugar is dissolved and the liquid is simmering.
Reduce heat to medium and cook until the fruit softens about 10 minutes.
Stir in the flour and cook another minute until the mixture thickens slightly.
Stir in the extract & zest, remove from heat. Cool before using!
When cool, pour into your pie crust and bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes and then turn the heat down to 375 degrees, cover the edges of your crust and cook for an additional 50 minutes or until the crust is golden and the fruit is bubbly. Cool before slicing.
I recommend giving your pie crust an egg wash before baking for the best color!
