Apple Pie in a Bag

Beau's Dutch Apple Pie
by Rebbekkah Fisher
adapted from Favorite Family Recipes

For the Crust:
1 1/2 cups flour 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup olive oil
2 Tablespoons milk

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Mix well and pat into the bottom and sides of a pie pan. (Don't roll the dough out.)
For the Apple Filling:
5-6 apples, peeled and sliced
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
2 Tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons almond extract 

Combine all ingredients except the apples in a bowl. Mix well, then toss the apples in the mixture. Put the apple filling into the unbaked pie crust.
For the Crumb Topping:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar

Use a pastry blender to cut the butter into the four and sugar, mix until crumbly. Cover the apple filling with the crumb topping. 
Yes, you really do put the pie inside a brown paper grocery bag. Once the pie is inside, roll up the the top of the bag and close it together with either staples or large paper clips. Place the bag on the lowest shelf in the oven. Bake at 350 for 90 minutes. Don't open the bag until the time is up and you have let it cool outside the oven for about 5 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream. So good!
