Directions:
In a large bowl, toss the apples with the sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and lemon juice. Pour into an unbaked pie shell and pat down.


Combine the butter, flour and sugar. With a pastry blender or two knives, cut the butter into the flour-sugar mixture until the crumbs are the size of peas. Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples and pat it down all around the edges of the pie.

Slide your pie into a brown paper bag and onto a cookie sheet. Fold the long end of the bag under the pie, making sure not paper will touch the heating element in your oven. Bake at 425 for about 50 minutes.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
A perfectly-baked pie with not under-baked apples, burned crust, or messy clean-up! I think this recipe would also work without the paper bag.
