Preheat oven an oven to 350°F, and place a baking sheet on the lowest rack to catch any drips from the apple pie.
Melt butter in a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat; add brown sugar, and cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, and let the mixture cool while you prepare the apples.
Peel apples, and cut into 1/2-inch-thick wedges. Toss apples with cinnamon and 3/4 cup granulated sugar.
Place 1 pie crust in the skillet over brown sugar mixture. Spoon apple mixture over piecrust, and top with remaining piecrust. Tuck edges inside the pan.
Whisk egg white with a little water until foamy. Brush the top of pie crust with egg white; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of sugar. Cut 4 or 5 slits in top for steam to escape.
Bake at 350° F for 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly, shielding with aluminum foil during last 10 minutes to prevent excessive browning, if necessary.
Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes before serving.
