   ***All time favorite. Serve warm with java and remember to have that chunk
   of cheese on the side or perhaps a scoop of vanilla ice crm instead.
   Preheat oven 450. Mix sugar; nutmeg, cinnamon, salt, and lemon rind. Line a
   pie plate with pastry and fill with a few apple chunks; sprinkle on some of
   the sugar mixture and a bit of lemon juice. Add more apples, more sugar
   mixture, and lemon juice; continue until pie pan is full, making sure the
   top layer of apples is liberally covered with sugar and seasonings.
   Sprinkle top with crumb mixture. CRUMB TOPPING: Combine sugar, flour,
   cinnamon, and salt. Cut in butter by hand or in food processor until
   mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle on top of apple pie. Bake crumb-topped pie 15
   mins, reduce heat to 350 for 30 mins, until crumbs are golden brown and
   apples sizzle.  Serve warm with Cheddar Cheese or a scoop of vanilla ice
