Apple Pie in a Paper Bag

Just trust me on this one, OK? It's so so so easy to make, you can make it into a family affair, and once you try it you'll never go back... Just make sure the paper bag doesn't touch the coils on top of the oven! Seriously, make sure...

Apple Pie in a Paper Bag
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 Tbsp. cold milk
1 tsp. salt
Combine all ingredients. Mix until well-blended. Press into bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie pan. DO NOT ROLL OUT.

4 cups pared, cored, diced apples (for best results, use a tart baking apple)
1/3 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1 rounded tsp. cinnamon
1 rounded tsp. ground nutmeg
Combine dry ingredients and then toss lightly with apples. Pour into unbaked pie shell.

1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup soft butter
1/2 cup sugar
Combine ingredients and mix together till crumbly. Sprinkle generously over top of pie.

Carefully place pie in a brown paper bag (i.e. a paper grocery bag) and staple it closed--do not tape; it will melt). Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours. Don't peek, but have plenty of vanilla ice cream ready...

So, how does the paper bag help? I'm very curious
