  Sugar 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

Directions

1. Cut butter into flour with a pastry blender or two knives until the pieces are size of small peas. Add water gradually, mixing with a fork until pastry holds together. Shape into a ball.
2. Roll pastry about 1/8 inch thick on a lightly floured surface. Line a 10-inch pie pan with pastry; flute edge. Sprinkle a mixture of almonds and crumbs over bottom; cover with apples.
3. Bake at 350°F 5 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, beat eggs and egg yolks slightly; add cream and 1/2 cup sugar; blend well. Pour half of the mixture over the apples.
