A satisfying crumbly-top pie with thick slices of apple not quite cooked through. Use only crisp tart apples or a combo of tart and sweet for this Irish dessert. Lemon juice keeps apples from turning brown and ups the tart factor.


  • Pastry dough to fill 9 inch pie dish (uncoooked)


  • 4 or 5 medium Granny Smith, or half Granny Smith/ half Red Delicious, peeled, cored and cut into thick slices
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Juice of half a lemon, seeds removed, to pour over apples as you place in bowl after slicing- prevent browning
