Winning Apple Pie Recipe from 2011 Old Fashioned Day Pie Contest

Apple Crumb Pie made by Kristin Terry


    * Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
                 (I used lard from the Meat Market here in Baraboo. 
                 recipe:  2/3   cup lard, salt–enough to lightly cover the     
                  bottom of my mixing bowl, 2 cups flour & 5 tbs ICEwater)
    * 6 cups chopped peeled tart apples (about 6 medium) 
                                      (I used 4 gala & 2 Granny Smith)
    * 2 tablespoons butter, melted
    * 2 tablespoons sour cream
    * 4 teaspoons lemon juice
    * 1/2 cup sugar
    * 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    * 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    * 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
              (I like to use whole nutmeg from the Grainery in Baraboo & grate it fresh myself)


(I did 1.5 of this recipe on my pie…it really is the “icing on the cake”, so a little more makes the pie better) 

    * 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    * 1/2 cup sugar
    * 1/4 cup cold butter


    * Line a 9-in. pie plate with pastry; flute edges and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the apples, butter, sour cream, lemon juice, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Spoon into pastry shell.
    * For topping, in a large bowl, combine flour and sugar; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over filling.
    * Bake at 375° for 45-50 minutes or until the filling is bubbly and the apples are tender. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 8 servings.
