1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
2 to 3 tablespoons cold water

Filling

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
6 medium (6 cups) tart cooking apples, peeled, sliced 1/4-inch

Streusel

1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened

Ice cream, if desired

Directions

Heat oven to 400°F. Combine all crust ingredients except 1/3 cup butter and water in large bowl. Cut in 1/3 cup butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in enough water with fork just until moistened.

Shape dough into a ball; flatten slightly. Roll out on lightly floured surface into 12-inch circle. Fold into quarters. Place dough into ungreased 9-inch pie pan; unfold dough, pressing firmly against bottom and sides. Crimp or flute edge. Set aside.

Combine all filling ingredients except apples in large bowl. Add apples; toss lightly to coat. Spoon apple mixture into prepared crust.

Combine all streusel ingredients except 1/4 cup butter in small bowl. Cut in 1/4 cup butter using pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs; sprinkle evenly over filling. Cover edge of crust with 2-inch strip of aluminum foil.

Bake for 35 minutes; remove foil. Continue baking for 15 to 20 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and juice begins to bubble through streusel. Cool 1 hour. Serve warm with ice cream, if desired.
