  1. Unroll pastry into a 9-in. pie plate; flute edges. In a large bowl, toss apples with apple butter. Combine the flour, sugar, pie spice and cinnamon; add to apple mixture and toss to coat. Transfer to crust.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, pie spice and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add walnuts; sprinkle over filling.
  3. Bake at 375° for 45-50 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is browned. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with ice cream if desired. Yield: 8 servings.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested with commercially prepared apple butter.

"When I started to make this I realized I didn't have apple butter so I made my own version. I took butter, cinnamon, apple spice and maple syrup and used that instead. It was awesome"

"I have tried a lot of apple pie recipes, and so far this is my favorite! My husband spotted this recipe in the magazine and asked me to try it - I'm so glad I did. I made my own pie crust and used homemade apple butter. I just finished another slice...YUM!!"
