Apple Crunch Pie

{Apple Crunch Pie}

Just found this recipe in a Woman's Day Magazine, 2004.  I just love the crunchie topping on this apple pie.

Make 1 bottom pie crust for 9'' pie (mine was homemade but the recipe recommends buying a store bought crust)

Crumb topping:
1/2 C plus 2 T flour
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/3 C white sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 stick butter, cold, cut into small pieces

7 medium to large apples
1 T lemon juice
1/2 C white sugar
3 T flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. nutmeg

Topping:  Mix flour, sugars, and cinnamon, cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture forms moist, coarse, crumbs that clump together easily.

Filling:  Peel, quarter and core apples.  Cut in 1/8'' thick slices. Put into a large bowl and toss with lemon juice to coat.  Mix remaining ingredients in a small bowl, sprinkle over apple slices, toss to coat.

Layer apple slices in pie shell, pat topping over apples to form a top crust.
Place pie in 450 degree oven for 15 min. then reduce oven to 350 degrees and bake 45 min., topping should be brown.  Serve alone or with ice cream while warm.
