DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°; place the pie shell on a sturdy baking sheet and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, rub the brown sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and cloves together with your fingertips until blended.
  • Add the apples and toss to coat.
  • Dump the spiced apple slices into the pie shell, including any sugar and juices that have accumulated in the bowl.
  • Topping-place the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and baking soda in a bowl; mix gently to break up any lumps of sugar, taking care not to crush the oats.
  • Add the butter and gently run the ingredients together with your fingertips to produce a mealy mixture with some lumps that clump together when squeezed in your hand.
  • Sprinkle the topping evenly over the pie, leaving a 1 1/2 inch border uncovered (the topping will cover the entire pie; if you put the crumbs close to the edges, they may run out with any juices that boil over, leaving no topping near the edges).
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until the juices are bubbling and the crumb topping is lightly browned all over.
  • Let cool before cutting.
