Why I Love This Recipe

The top crust on this old favorite features walnuts, raisins and fresh gingerroot.


Ingredients You'll Need

Pastry Ingredients:
Single crust unbaked 9-inch pastry

Filling Ingredients:
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
2 teaspoons freshly grated gingerroot
5 medium (5 cups) Granny Smith apples, cored, thinly sliced

Topping Ingredients:
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup cold LAND O LAKES® Butter
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
Ice cream, if desired


Directions

Heat oven to 375°F. Combine 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup flour, raisins, 1/4 cup walnuts and gingerroot in large bowl. Add apple slices; toss gently to coat. Spoon into pastry shell.


Combine 3/4 cup flour and 1/2 cup brown sugar in small bowl; cut in 1/2 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in 1/4 cup walnuts. Press evenly over apple mixture.


Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until apples are fork tender. (If crust is browning too quickly, cover edge with 2-inch strip of aluminum foil.) Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.
