    List of Ingredients




    Crumb Apple Pie


    Crust:
    1 cup flour
    1/2 tsp. salt
    1/3 cup solid vegetable shortening
    1/4 cup ice water
    Filling:
    7 medium Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples
    1/2 cup granulated sugar
    1 tsp. cinnamon
    1/4 tsp. nutmeg
    1/4 tsp. salt

    Topping:
    3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
    3/4 cup flour
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/3 cup chilled butter or margarine, cut into pieces

    Recipe



    Place rack on lowest position. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. To prepare crust; in a medium bowl mix together flour and salt. Using a pastry blender or 2 knives (I also use my fingers) cut shortening into flour mixture until course crumbs form. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with a fork, until a dough forms. Shape into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for 30 minutes. On a floured surface, using a floured rolling pin, roll dough into a 12 inch circle. Fit into a 9 inch pie plate. Trim dough, leaving a 1 inch overhang; pinch a decorative edge.

    To prepare filling; peel, core and very thinly slice the apples. Mix together with other filling ingredients. Spoon into crust.

    For topping, in a small bowl, mix together brown sugar, flour and cinnamon. Cut butter into mixture until course crumbs form. Sprinkle apple filling evenly with topping. Bake pie until topping is lightly browned and filling is bubbly, 35 minutes. If pie is overbrowning, cover loosely with foil. Cool on a wire rack. 8 servings.
