Swedish Apple Pie

Filling:
2/3 cup raisins (optional)
3 medium apples, any baking variety, peeled and sliced
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg

Topping:
3/4 cup butter
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Heat the oven to 350.  Place the raisins in a small bowl, cover them with hot water and microwave them on high until they become plump, about 20 to 30 seconds.  Drain the raisins, then combine them with the apple slices.  Transfer fruit to a 9 inch pie plate (should be no more than 2/3 full).

In a small bowl, mix the sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg and sprinkle the mixture over the fruit.

To make the topping, first melt the butter and set it aside.  In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, sugar, salt and egg until they’re evenly blended.  Whisk in the butter then spread the topping over the fruit and sprinkle on the nuts.

Bake the pie until golden brown, about 40 minutes.  Serve it warm, with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.  Serves 10.
