Poor the custard in the piecrust and fill it with layers of apple slices, nuts/raisins, apple slices etc. Then cover the pie with a lattice work of crust. Bake the pie golden brown in the middle of the oven for one hour and fifteen minutes. Then immediately cover it with apricot jam and sprinkle it with powdered sugar before serving.
