Ingredients

  • 1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons ice water
  • FILLING:
  • 9 medium Golden Delicious or Braeburn apples (about 3 pounds), peeled and cut into 3/4-inch chunks
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • TOPPING:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons water

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Separate one-fourth of the dough for decorative cutouts; shape both portions into disks and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 450°. In a Dutch oven, combine filling ingredients. Cook over medium heat 10-15 minutes or until apples are almost tender, stirring occasionally; remove from heat.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll larger portion of dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Line unpricked pastry with a double thickness of foil. Fill with pie weights, dried beans or uncooked rice.
  4. Bake 8 minutes. Remove foil and weights; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack. Reduce oven setting to 375°.
  5. For topping, in a small bowl, combine flour, brown sugar and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in walnuts. Make decorative cutouts with remaining dough.
  6. Spoon filling into crust; sprinkle with topping. Arrange cutouts over pie. In a small bowl, whisk egg and water; brush over cutouts. Bake pie 35-45 minutes or until golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 12 servings.
Editor's Note: Let pie weights cool before storing. Beans and rice may be reused for pie weights, but not for cooking.
