This recipe came to us from Ursula Apitz, the real driving force behind the famous Grenadier restaurant in Milwaukee. Sadly, that restaurant is now closed, but you can taste a piece of history with this pie recipe.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
For the crust:
With a fork, cut the butter into the flour until the consistency of corn meal. Add the salt, and mix in the iced water. Roll out dough on a floured surface to about 1/4 inch. Place in an ungreased pie tin.
For the filling:
Peel, core and slice the apples. Toss the apples in a bowl with the flour and apple pie spice. Pack the slices into the pie shell, tightly, as the apples will shrink.
For the topping:
Mix butter, Old Town Sugar, and 1 Cup flour together until they slightly clump together, sprinkle over the apples. Bake about 40 minutes, until the apples start to bubble and the sugary topping browns.
