Crumble Top apple Pie
The crust is simple: 3cups flour, 1 cup lard (and yeah I actually used lard this time,but never again cuz it tastes like a pig) a tsp of salt, a tbsp of sugar and enough ice water to make it feel right.
I baked the pie for 40 mins at 400. Then threw on my crumble top which was 1/3 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup white sugar, 1 1/4 flour, 7-8 Tbsp butter melted. Baked that for another 20 mins and then removed to a cooling rack where it has sat waiting for my wife to give it a try.
******And the vote is in, "it's the closest to perfect you've ever come!" If I were a woman I might try to analyze that to death and infer that it wasn't good enough, but I will take it like a man and say "hell yeah, I did it!"
