Deep-Dish Apple Pie with Crumble Topping
I got this recipe from lots of different sources. I couldn't find one I liked. So took what I liked and added my own spin and this is what came out. I love this recipe, because it has all the flavors of fall. A little trick I learned from my grandmother: use different types of apples for the best flavor. I use Granny Smith, Braeburn, and Golden Delicious, but you can use whatever you like. I serve it as is, but encourage the use of ice cream, whipped cream, or whatever addition the occasion calls for.
Recipe Summary test
You may not need to add the full amount of water to the dough - too much water will make the dough too soft and sticky to handle.
If you are going to use mulling spices you need to grind them, for spices are kept whole. You can substitute 1/4 teaspoon each of ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground allspice, and ground anise for the mulling spices.
You can make 2 regular 9-inch pies with this amount of filling if you need to serve 16 people.
