My First Apple Crumble Pie

Slightly burnt, but looks homely, and of course, a lot of room for improvement. I'll definitely try again, because they are delicious.

Firstly, make the shell.

Arrange all the apples into the shell. Bake.

Apple Crumble Pie
Ingredients for the pie shell
175 grams all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tablespoon sugar
115 grams unsalted butter, chilled, and cut into 1 inch (2.54 cm) pieces
1/8 to 1/4 cup (30 - 60 ml) ice water

Baking Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients for the fillings
3 medium sized apple
1/2 cup strawberries
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
4 tbsp granulated white sugar, or more, if a sweeter pie is preferred

Directions for the fillings
Core and slice the apples thinly. Mix 3 tablespoons of sugar with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Mix evenly with apple. Set aside. Slice the strawberries and stir in the remainder tablespoonful of sugar. Set aside for 1/2 an hour.

Ingredients for the crumble
75 grams all-purpose flour, sifted
60 grams butter, chilled
1/2 tablespoon sugar

Direction for the crumble

Mix the butter with the flour in a dry bowl until mixture resembles coarse meal. It's alright to have differently sized crumbles, its just gonna add to the rustic, homecooked character. Optional ingredients of oatmeal or corn flakes can be added now, but I prefer to go the simpler way by omitting them. Mix it all in well.
