|2 1/2 cups)||all-purpose flour|
|1/2 tsp||ground cinnamon|
|1/4 tsp||ground nutmeg|
|3/4 cups||room-temperature butter|
|6 to 9 tbsp||cold water|
|1/4 cup||firmly packed brown sugar|
|1/4 cup||all-purpose flour|
|1/2 tsp||ground cinnamon|
|1/2 tsp||ground nutmeg|
|1 tbsp||room-temperature butter|
Preheat oven to 200 C (390 F)
Add the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg to a bowl. Cut the butter in small pieces and add to the bowl. Granulate the mixture with a pastry blender or fork until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add water and stir until combined.
Divide dough in half and shape each half into a ball. Flatten slightly. Wrap each ball in plastic food wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Roll out one ball of dough on lightly floured surface into a 12-inch circle. Fold into quarters. Place dough in an ungreased 9-inch pie plate and unfold dough, pressing firmly against the bottom and sides. Trim crust to 1/2 inch from the edge of the pie plate. Set aside.
Blend all filling ingredients except apples, butter and 1 teaspoon of sugar in a bowl. Add apples; toss lightly to coat. Put the coated apples on the prepared crust.
Roll remaining ball of dough into a 12-inch circle. Place it over the filling, trim, seal and crimp or flute edge. Cut 5 or 6 large slits in crust. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar. Cover edge of crust with 2-inch strip aluminum foil.
Bake 35 minutes, remove foil. Continue baking 10-20 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and juice begins to bubble through the crusts slits. Cool pie for about 30 minutes. Serve warm.
