This pie is really delicious. We made this a couple time at Young Women Activities. The crust is slightly different than regular pie crust, but is really good. This recipe is great for those of you who might shy away from rolling out pie pastry. You can pat it in the glass pie dish. The hardest part of this recipe is finding a PAPER BAG, and not peeking!

1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup oil
2 tablespoons cold milk
6 cups peeled and sliced apples
(Rome Beauty are excellent)
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup butter

To make the crust, mix the 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar, salt, oil, and milk with a fork until well blended. Don’t over blend. Press into a greased, 10 inch glass pie plate. In a large bowl toss apples with the 1/2 cup sugar, the 2 tablespoons flour, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Mound apple filling into crust-lined pan. Prepare topping by combining the other 1/2 cup sugar, the 1/2 cup flour, and butter until the mixture resembles pea size crumbs or slightly smaller. Sprinkle over apples.

* Place in medium -to large brown bag, folding over edges. Oven must be completely preheated to avoid burning the bag. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours. Do not open oven during cooking.
