INSTRUCTIONS

Filling

Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line 9-inch pie plate with pastry. Trim and crimp edges as desired; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, butter, lemon rind, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add apples; toss well. Arrange in pastry-lined plate.

Crumb Topping

In a small bowl, mix oats, brown sugar, flour and butter with pastry blender or fingertips until mixture resembles coarse meal. Spoon topping over apples. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with alminum foil. 

Bake 15 minutes; reduce oven temperature to 350°F and bake 40 minutes or until apples are tender. When topping begins to brown, cover with foil. Remove to cooling rack.
