For the pie crust:
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix first 4 ingredients in a large bowl, reserving the extra 3/4 cup flour.
Use a pastry cutter to cut in the shortening and form a ball of dough.
Start with 1 Tbsp cold water and add extra if necessary.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface a littler larger than your pie pan.
Drape the dough over the pan pie and press the dough to the sides.
Pull off any extra dough hanging over the sides and form a border around the pie with your fingers. Set aside.
For the filling:
Peel and core the apples and cut them into slices.
Add the tapioca, white sugar and 1 Tbsp of cinnamon to the apples and coat.
Pour the apple mixture into the pie crust.
For the topping:
In a medium bowl, mix the butter, reserved flour, brown sugar, and 1 tsp cinnamon.
Use a pastry cutter to cut in the butter until the mixture is crumbly.
Put the crumbles over the apple pie filling, making sure some fits into the nooks and crannies.
Bake the apple pie at 350 for 1 hour.
