CRUMB-TOPPED APPLE PIE

Many of our family traditionalists favor Judy's Apple Pie, but if  you are looking for a slightly different apple pie, try this:

N.B. Filling ingredients must be combined and refrigerated overnight or at least three hours in advance!

Filling:

3 lbs. apples such as Cortland, Rome or Macoun,  peeled and thinly sliced
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp. grated lemon rind
1 tsp. grated orange rind
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ginger
1/2 can evaporated milk

 Crumb topping:

1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter

To make crumb topping:  Combine all topping ingredients, and blend with a fork or pastry blender until texture is even.
