her crumb crust for the top. I had never made an all-butter pie crust (usually relied on shortening for pie dough). Found this post for the pie dough recipe.
Combine in food processor:
1.25 C whole wheat flour
2 TB flaxmeal
1/4 tea salt
Now work in 8 TB butter in the food processor.
Finally pour in 3 TB ice water and blitz to combine. Bring into a ball on a cutting board and frissage the dough.
Wrap the disc of dough in plastic wrap and freeze. Then roll out and shape into pie pan.
Crumb Crust Topping
Blizt until sandy in food processor:
1/2 C sugar
3/4 C all purpose flour
1/3 C butter
Chop up 4-6 apples (enough to fill the pie pan) into small chunks, discarding core. Peels are fine.
1 TB lemon juice
1 TB flour
1 TB cinnamon
Assembly: pour apple chunk filling into crust, top with crumb crust.
Bake at 375 for 1 hour or so- until the crust is firm/flaky.
