Apple Pie I made for Thanksgiving

I looked up Pioneer woman's apple pie recipe,  but I'm allergic to nuts and  her's didn't have spices in it, so I fixed it and made it this way.  It is strongly based on Ree's recipe though... :)  I may even add the caramel topping, but haven't decided yet.

Apple Pie Ingredients  

1 whole Pie Crust 
6 cups (to 7 Cups) Peeled And Sliced Granny Smith Apples 
½ whole (juice Of) Lemon 
½ cup Sugar 
4 Tablespoons Flour 
¼ teaspoon Salt
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg

 Topping 

½ cup Flour 
1 ½ stick Butter 
1 cup Brown Sugar 
½ cup Quick Oats 
¼ teaspoon Salt
½ tsp ground cloves

 

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 375°.
In a bowl mix peeled apples, lemon juice, sugar, flour and ¼ teaspoon salt. Set aside. For crumb topping, cut the butter into the flour with a pastry cutter, then add in brown sugar, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg and ¼ teaspoon salt.
Add apples to prepared pie shell and top with crumb topping. Cover crust edges with aluminum foil and bake at 375° for 25 minutes. Remove foil from crust and place back into the oven for another 30 minutes.
