- To make filling, combine all ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
- Preheat oven to 180°C. To make topping, combine flour, sugars, butter and a pinch of salt in a food processor and process until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Spoon filling into pie pan, spreading evenly, then spread with topping. Bake for 1 hour or until apples are tender and pastry is golden.
