Apple Pie with Walnut Crumb Topping

Crumb topping added and now the pie is ready for the preheated 375 degree oven

Apple Pie with Walnut Crumb Topping                                                  Printable Recipe

5 to 5 1/2 cups of chopped apples (washed, peeled and cored) (I prefer macintosh apples)
Juice and zest from 1 lemon
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon flour

Macintosh apples (and 1 lemon)

1.  Make the crust first (make the single crust recipe at the top of "The Basics of Baking - Pie Crust" ) - and roll out the dough (place in the pie plate and flute the edges).
2.  Prepare the apples as described above and then mix all ingredients together (the apples, lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar, cinnamon and flour)
3.  Pour apple mixture into the already rolled out pie crust from step 1.

Apple pie filling

Walnut Crumb Topping

1/3 cup butter (softened)
1/2 cup flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (you may substitute pecans or slivered almonds)
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix the butter, flour, cinnamon and sugar with a pie cutter or fork until crumbly.  Stir in the walnuts.  Sprinkle this walnut crumb mixture on top of the apples in the pie crust (see first picture at the top of this post).

Bake in a 375 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until desired golden brown color is achieved.

Allow the pie to cool and ENJOY
