Apple Crumb Pie

Apple Crumb Pie: Serves 10 ( 5 points)

1 c. all purpose flour
1/4 c. whole wheat flour
3 T. reduced fat shredded cheddar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 c. canola oil
1 T. light stick butter, melted
2-4 T. water

1 large lemon
1/3 c. sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
pinch of ginger
pinch of nutmeg
2 large Granny Smith or other green apple, peeled and cut into 1/4 " slices
2 large golden Delicious or Jonagold apples, peeled and cut into 1/4 " slices


1/4 c. all purpose flour
1/4 c. whole wheat flour
2 T. quick cooking oats ( not instant)
2 T. canola oil
1 T. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. ground allspice

Preheat oven to 375. To make crust, combine the first four ingredients in a bowl. Combine the melted butter and oil in a cup and pour over dry ingredients. Toss with a fork. Add water 1 T. at a time until dough holds together. Shape into a disk and roll between 2 pieces of plastic wrap until dough will fit a 9" pie plate..

To make filling, grate the zest of one whole lemon. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice of half of the lemon into a bowl. Add the zest, apples, sugar, cinnamon, salt, ginger and nutmeg. Toss to coat. Transfer to crust.

For topping, combine all ingredients and toss until crumbs form. Sprinkle over filling. Bake until filling is bubbly and top is golden, about 55 minutes.( I had to bake mine longer) Loosely cover with foil during last 15 minutes of baking.

Cool and serve warm. Top with a dollop of Cool Whip Free if you like.
