1   Butter
1 cup 160g / 5.6ozLight brown sugar - divided
3 1/2 teaspoons 17mlCinnamon - divided
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlAllspice
1/4 teaspoon 1.3mlGround cloves
1 1/2 teaspoons 7.5mlLemon juice
3/4 cup 46g / 1.6ozFlour
1/2 cup 99g / 3.5ozSugar
10 tablespoons 150mlFrozen butter - see * Note
1 1/3 cups 194g / 6.8ozChopped walnuts
  Ice cream - (optional)

Recipe Instructions

* Note: Butter must be frozen to grate properly. If the butter softens, you will end up with a gooey mess.

Let pie thaw at room temperature for 30 to 45 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small saucepan, melt the stick of butter over medium heat. Add 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, allspice, cloves and lemon juice. Stir until well blended and sugar is melted, about 3 minutes.

Make an X in the center of the top crust of the pie and fold back the crust. Pour the butter mixture evenly into the pie and then replace the crust. Leave 4 vent holes, sealing the rest of the pastry. (You may need to dampen your fingers to seal the pastry.) Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.

Reduce heat to 325 degrees.

Prepare topping. Grate frozen butter into a medium-sized bowl. Toss the grated butter with flour, remaining sugars, remaining cinnamon and walnuts.

Carefully wrap an aluminum foil band around the edge of the pie, creating a lip to hold topping. Sprinkle topping evenly over pie.

Bake for 30 to 40 minutes. Let rest for 10 minutes then serve with ice cream, if desired.
