Apple Crumble Pie

Apple Crumble Pie

1 pie crust
Topping:  3/4 cup of flour
1/3 cup EACH brown sugar and granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 stick butter
1/3 cup pecans if desired
 
Filling: 
7 large apples, peeled and thinly sliced
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
dash nutmeg
1-2 Tablespoons apple cider (optional)
 
Preheat oven to 450.  Use a large pie plate.  Let apples mix with filling ingredients.  Mix topping ingredients in large bowl with a pastry blender.  Put apple mix in crust, top evenly with crumb mixture.  Place on a cookie sheet to catch drips!  Bake at 15 minutes at 450 degrees, then LOWER temperature to 350, and bake an additional 45 minutes.  You may have to use a pie crust shield or cover the edges with foil to keep the edges from getting too brown.  Cool slightly and serve.  Great warm with either whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
