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.

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.)
