Apple Crumb Pie

My husband entered this pie in a pie contest last night. It received rave reviews. You can read about the contest here!

CRUST:
1 1/2 cup flour
3 T. sugar
1/2 t. salt
1/2 cup butter (not margarine)
1 egg yolk
3 T. water

Combine flour, sugar, and salt in small bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk together egg yolk with water and add to flour mixture. Stir until forms a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for one hour or more. On lightly floured surface, roll crust out and place in GREASED 9 inch deep dish pie plate. (Or MASH it into the pan like my husband does as you can read about at the above link!)

APPLE FILLING:
6 cups thinly sliced Granny Smith apples
3/4 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

TOPPING:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
6 tablespoons butter (not margarine)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place sliced apples in a large bowl. In a small bowl, mix together white sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sprinkle mixture over apples. Toss until apples are evenly coated. Spoon mixture into pastry shell.

In a small bowl mix together 1/2 cup flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter or margarine until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle mixture over apple filling. Cover top loosely with aluminum foil. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. (My husband baked it on top of an upside-down 9 x 9 inch pan. He saw this suggested somewhere.) Remove foil and bake an additional 25 to 30 minutes, until top is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

Connie,
The disposable pie plate did great, but in the glass plate we just returned home with from a church fellowship dinner, the crust stuck. Next time he/we will grease the plate. (I've added this to the recipe post.)

How fun to go apple picking! We have very few apple trees here in SW Oklahoma!

Thanks for stopping by! Lori
