Apple Crumble Pie

Better Homes & Gardens New Cook Book

(Note: this recipe comes from the 1981 version of the cookbook, which was a gift from my mom when I moved into my first apartment. I remember the first time I made it, trying to find mace without having any idea what it was and having no internet to check. This is the apple pie that David loves most… right now.)

1 c sugar
2 T flour
1 tsp lemon peel
6 c apples, peeled and sliced
3 T lemon juice
1/4 c butter
1/2 c flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp mace

Combine 1/2 c sugar, 2 T flour, and the lemon peel. Sprinkle apple slices with lemon juice; add sugar mixture and toss to coat. Put apple mixture in a pastry-lined 9-inch pie plate.

Combine the remaining 1/2 c sugar with 1/2 c flour and the spices. Cut in the butter to form coarse crumbs, then sprinkle on top of the apples.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour (or until brown and bubbly).

I usually add 1/2 c rolled oats to the topping for a bit more texture and heartiness.
