  • Portion size 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cups cubed cold butter
  • 3/4 cups Ice water
Filling:
  • 8 apple (about 3 lb/1.5 kg)
  • 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Topping:
  • 2 tablespoons softened butter
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnut
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Method

In bowl, whisk together flour, sugar and salt. Using pastry blender or 2 knives, cut in butter until in fine crumbs with a few larger pieces. Add ice water all at once; mix with fork just until dough comes together. With hands, shape into disc. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days or overwrap in foil and freeze for up to 2 weeks.)

Filling: Peel, core and cut apples into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick wedges. In bowl, toss together apples, brown sugar, flour, lemon juice and cinnamon. Set aside.

On floured surface, roll out pastry into 17-inch (43 cm) round. Fit into 10-inch (25 cm) cast-iron skillet or deep-dish pie plate, letting excess hang over. Spoon in filling; fold pastry over, making rough folds and leaving centre uncovered. Bake in centre of 350°F (180°C) oven for 1 hour.

Topping: In bowl and using fork, blend butter, brown sugar and flour; stir in walnuts. Crumble over filling in centre of pie. Brush pastry with milk; sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake until pastry is golden and filling is tender and bubbly, about 30 minutes. Let cool on rack. (Make-ahead: Set aside for up to 4 hours.)
