Crumb Topped Apple Pie


Pastry for 9-inch one-crust pie
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp ground cinnamon
dash salt
8 cups granny Smith apple -- sliced, pared (8 med
Crumb Topping:
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
a pinch of cloves and mace


Heat oven to 450 degrees. Mix sugar, flour, cinnamon & salt in large bowl. Stir in apples. Put apple-mixture into pastry-lined pie plate. (You may want to press apples down firmly -- they shrink a LOT!!! You need a real mound of apples to end up with a decent pie). Mix sugar and flour for crumb crust in medium bowl. Cut in margarine; add spices. Put crumbs on top of pie -- you'll probably need to press them onto apples to keep them from falling off. Bake for 10 minutes; then lower to 350 and bake for 40 more.
