Add ice water and ¼ cup apple wine, one tablespoon at a time, and mix until it is just moist enough for dough to come together. Flatten dough into disk. Wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 20–30 minutes.

  6. Bake 40 minutes, until the crumble and crust are golden brown.
  7. Cool and serve with whipped cream.
