Apple Pie with Oat Crumb Topping

Here's a recipe that is a mix between a Dutch Apple Pie and Apple Crisp. Very sweet, but quite delicious with some whipped cream or ice-cream.

6 cups apples (cored, peeled and sliced)
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Single Pie Pastry Recipe:
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup + 2 tablespoons shortening
1/4 cup cold water (2 parts)

Crumb Topping:
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup butter

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In medium bowl, combine apple slices, sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir until mixed well. Set aside while you prepare the pie pastry.

In medium sized bowl, mix together flour and salt. Add shortening and cut in with a fork until crumbly. Add 1/8 cup water and mix, then add the rest of the water to finish mixing the dough. Dough should hold together in a ball. Roll out on floured surface the size of your pie plate. Crimp edges of pie. Add apple mixture on top of bottom crust.

In small bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, oats, and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over apple filling. Bake for 15 minutes. Lower oven temperature to 375 degrees and bake another 35-40 minutes until top is golden brown, using aluminum foil if necessary to prevent edges from getting too dark. Allow to cool on a wire rack. Drizzle caramel over top if desired.
