1/2 cup
large-flake oats

  • WHIRL 1 1/4 cups flour with granulated sugar and 1/2 tsp salt in a food processor. Add 1/2 cup butter. Pulse until crumbs form. With machine still running, add water through the spout, 1 tbsp at a time, until dough comes together, 30 sec. Flatten into a disc. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 min.
  • POSITION rack in lower third of oven. Preheat to 375F. Place a 9-in. pie plate on a baking sheet.
  • STIR oats with 1/2 cup flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 tsp salt in a medium bowl. Add 1/2 cup butter and work in, using your fingertips, until crumbly.
  • TOSS apples with 1/2 cup brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom and 1/8 tsp salt in a large bowl until evenly coated. Add half the crumble mixture and toss until combined.
  • ROLL out pastry disc, on a lightly floured surface, into a 13-in. circle. Lift onto pie plate. Press dough over bottom and up sides of pan, leaving 1-in. overhang. Tuck pastry edge under itself and crimp together using your index finger and thumb, or press around edges using the tines of a fork. Scrape apple mixture into pastry. Sprinkle remaining crumble mixture over apples.
  • BAKE in lower third of oven, covered with foil, 20 min. Remove foil and continue baking until golden, 40 to 50 more min. Transfer pie to a rack to cool completely, 1 hour. Serve with vanilla ice cream or vanilla custard, if desired.
