Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
In a large mixing bowl, combine the sliced apples, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and lemon juice. Mix well and set aside.
In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the flour and stir until it forms a paste. Add the water and stir until the mixture comes to a boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Pour the butter mixture over the apple mixture and stir until the apples are coated.
Roll out one of the pre-made pie crusts and place it in the bottom of the deep-dish pie pan. Trim the edges of the crust with a knife.
Pour the apple mixture into the pie crust.
Roll out the second pre-made pie crust and place it over the top of the apple mixture. Trim the edges of the crust with a knife and use a fork to press the edges together.
Use a pastry brush to brush the top of the pie crust with a little bit of water.
Use a knife to make a few slits in the top of the pie crust to allow steam to escape.
Bake the pie for 45-50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling.
Let the pie cool for at least 30 minutes before slicing and serving.
