Apple Shortbread Pie


2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup chilled butter or margarine, diced
2 egg yolks, beaten


1-1/4 lb. Golden Delicious apples; peeled, cored, cut into 1/4" slices
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. each ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg

      Heat oven to 400ºF (205ºC).  Sift four, 1/2 cup sugar and salt into a large bowl.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Fold in egg yolks (mixture will be crumbly).  Remove 1/4 of mixture and set aside.  Press remainder onto bottom and sides of an 8" tart shell or pie pan.  In a large bowl, combine apples, brown sugar, 1 tbsp. flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Place apples into crust, sprinkling reserved crumb mixture evenly over top.  Place pie on a baking sheet, and bake 15 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350ºF (175ºC).  Continue baking 20 minutes, or until top is golden brown and filling is bubbling.  Makes 8 servings.
