Apple Pie with Crumble Topping

1 refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box or homemade crust
(you will only need a bottom crust)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2  teaspoon ground nutmeg
6 cups thinly sliced, peeled tart apples

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cold butter
1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

Heat oven to 400°F. Place pie crust in 9-inch glass pie plate as directed on box for One-Crust Filled Pie.
In large bowl mix sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, nutmeg, and lemon juice.  Peel each apple, core them and slice thinnly.  Then add to the sugar mixture. Gently stir in apples.  Pour filling into crust-lined pie plate.

In small bowl, mix topping ingredients: flour, sugar, butter, and walnuts until crumbly. Sprinkle over the top of the pie.  Loosely cover pie with sheet of foil and bake 1 hour. After an hour uncover the pie and bake 10 minutes longer or until apples are tender and topping is golden brown. Enjoy!
