Instructions for Whole Wheat Pastry Butter Pie Crust:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut the butter into tablespoons and then each tablespoon into quarters.
Mix the whole wheat pastry flour with the salt in a medium bowl or a food processor. Put cut butter in the freezer while mixing flour and salt.
Add the cold butter pieces and cut in using a pastry blender or by pulsing in the food processor. Add ice water, ½ tablespoon at a time until dough forms into a ball. Gather up and pat into a disk.
Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
When ready to use, roll dough out between 2 sheets of wax paper into one nine inch disc. Place dough in pie plate fitting loosely and then pressing into place.
Instructions for filling:
Toss the fruit with lemon juice, pinch of salt, arrowroot, spices, apricot spread and honey.
Carefully place the fruit in the unbaked pie shell.
Instructions for topping:
Mix the oats, flour, almonds, maple sugar, and salt together in a bowl. Add the oil and, with fingers or a pastry blender, mix until crumbly. Sprinkle the topping all over the pie, carefully pressing down just a bit to secure.
Bake for 1 to 1 ¼ hour. You may want to place a cookie sheet on a lower rack under the pie to catch any juice that may drip down onto the oven.
