  3. In a small bowl mix together sugar, flour, cornstarch, cinnamon and nutmeg. Blend well.
  4. In a large bowl mix sliced apples and lemon juice. Add sugar spice mixture and mix until apples are well coated. Set aside to allow flavors to combine.
  5. Using a slotted spoon, fill the prepared and pre-baked pie crust with the apple mixture, leaving the excess juice in the bowl.
  6. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and butter, using a pastry blender to mix until well blended and crumbly. Lightly pack topping on top of apple mixture.
