Place dulce de leche in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 35 seconds or until soft enough to spread.
Arrange one-third of apple slices in a circular pattern in pie crust. Spread ½ cup dulce de leche over apples. Arrange another third of apples; spread another ½ cup dulce de leche over apples. Top with remaining apples; spread remaining dulce de leche over apples.
Cover pie with second crust, pinching edges together. Cut a few vent holes in top of pie.
Beat egg and water in small bowl; brush crust with egg mixture. Mix granulated sugar and remaining ½ teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl; sprinkle over crust. Place pie on baking sheet.
