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."

Original recipe yields 10 servings (1 9-inch deep-dish pie)
- Mix 1 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a large bowl. Rub egg yolks and cold butter into the flour mixture until it forms fine crumbs. Add water a little at a time just until dough starts to form and stick together. Wrap dough with plastic wrap and allow to rest in the refrigerator, about 30 minutes.
- Roll pie dough out on a well-floured surface and place in 9-inch deep-dish pie plate.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- Combine apples, 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, mulling spices, and pinch of salt in a large bowl; mix well to combine. Place apple mixture in prepared pie shell.
- Cream 1/2 cup softened butter and 1/2 cup sugar together in a bowl with an electric mixer. Stir in 3/4 cup flour, oats, cinnamon, and pinch of salt. Sprinkle the topping mixture over the apples.
- Bake pie in the preheated oven until crust and topping are golden brown and filling begins to bubble, about 1 hour.
- Cook's Notes:
- 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.
- Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
