  • For The Pie Crust: Before making the pie crust, put mixing bowl, utensils and rolling pin (if made of marble) in freezer beforehand for best results.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Blend flour, salt and shortening with a fork.
  • Add water until a good consistency of dough is formed.
  • Roll out with a rolling pin and place in 9 in pie plate (deep dish).
  • Bake for 10 to 12 mins.
  • For The Pie Filling: Preheat Oven to 425 degrees.
  • Combine sugar, flour, nutmeg and cinnamon.
  • Stir into apple slices.
  • Combine topping ingredients until coarsely mixed.
  • Spread topping across apple slices.
  • I usually place teaspoonful amounts scattered across the top of the pie filling as thats what it looked like in the picture.
  • Place pie in large brown paper grocery sack.
  • I usually fold the top edges down once and then use three paper clips to keep the fold in place and the heat in.
  • Put entire bag on a cookie sheet.
  • Make sure that the bag is not touching top or sides of oven.
  • Bake for one hour at 425 degrees.
