1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
6 cups apples, more or less, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup milk or cream
2 Tablespoons butter
1 deep dish pie crust

1/2 cup sugar, or a little less
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup softened butter, or a little less
Dash cinnamon

Mix 1/4 cup sugar, brown sugar, cornstarch, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and milk. Spread through 2 - 3 layers of apples in a deep dish pie crust. Slice 2 Tablespoons of butter and place on top layer of apples. Combine 1/2 cup sugar, flour, 1/3 cup butter, and a dash of cinnamon. Mix until crumbly. Place on top of apples. Put aluminum foil under pie, because it will boil over. Bake at 350 for 50 minutes.

The pie can be frozen without cooking. To bake, take out of freezer (do not thaw), and bake uncovered at 350 for 20 minutes, then at 300 for 1 hour.
