In a bowl, whisk flour and salt.  Using 2 forks/knives, cut butter into the dry ingredients until the pieces are pea sized.  Gradually add water until the dough comes together.  Shape into 5 equal sized balls, flatten to discs, and wrap separately in cling film.  Rest in the refrigerator for half an hour.  Preheat the oven to 425°F.   In a large bowl toss together apples with sugars, our, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt.  On a floured work surface, rollout each dough-round to approximately 8”.   Spoon lling inside leaving 1 inch of dough empty around the perimeter.   Fold dough over to enclose and secure the filling.   Dot the exposed filling of each pie with butter.   Place pies carefully on 1 or 2 parchment-lined baking sheets.   Brush the pastry with milk.  Bake for 35 minutes, until browned and crisp.
