Apple Crumb Pie
2/3 c. granulated sugar
2 T. flour
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. EACH: cloves, salt, and nutmeg
6 c. coarsely diced, peeled tart apples
1 Unbaked 10-inch Pie Shell
3/4 c. flour
1/2 c. firmly-packed brown sugar
6 T. butter
1/3 c. chopped nuts (like roasted pecans)
Combine: 2/3 c. sugar, 2 T. flour, the spices and salt. Toss together with diced apples until well-mixed. Spoon into pie shell. Bake in preheated 400 oven for 25 mintues.
Meanwhile, blend 3/4 c. flour with the brown sugar until well blended. Cut in butter until mixture looks like coarse meal. Stir in nuts. Take Pie from oven and sprinkle with butter-sugar mixture. Return to oven and continue baking 30-35 minutes, or until browned and apples are tender.
** I don't always like pie crust, so sometimes I just spray a baking dish and put the apples in to bake that way and make a crisp.
