Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Although we usually would make our own pie crust, sometimes you don't have the time. This time we decided to use a pre-made pie shell. Cut peeled apples into thin wedges and put into a large bowl. Stir in lemon juice. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon, cornstarch and salt. Add this mixture to the bowl of apples and stir to coat. Dump into pie plate with bottom crust. Put crumble topping on top of apple filling. Bake pie on the bottom rack for 7 minutes, then move to the middle rack, placing pie on a metal baking sheet to catch spills. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake for additional 40 minutes or until juices are bubbling and crust is nicely browned. Then remove from oven and let rest for 1 hour on a wire rack.
In a medium-sized bowl, place the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt, and whisk to combine. Add the butter and chopped almonds, and mix to combine well. Place the bowl in the refrigerator to chill for about 10 minutes or until firm (or the freezer for about 5 minutes).
