Apple Streusel Pie

Combine sugar, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Combine half the sugar mixture (about 3/4 cup) with 1 1/2 cups flour, the butter and walnuts. Rub butter into flour mixture until chunky crumbs form. Combine remaining sugar mixture with apples and 1/4 cup flour.
Remove foil from crust and fill with apple mixture, mounding in center; top evenly with crumb mixture. Bake until browned and bubbly, 55 min to 1 hr.
