I don't usually make pie. Not because I don't like it, I am just not very good at it. But this recipe has given me new hope! I LOVE this pie, it is probably the only one I will ever make again, it is that good! I can't for the life of me remember where I got the recipe, so please forgive me for not giving credit where credit is due, especially with such an amazing recipe!
Apple Crisp Pie
(makes one pie)
1 homemade or store bought pie crust (I use this recipe)
5 1/2 cups peeled, cored and sliced apples (my fav is honey crisp)
1 T fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
3 T flour
1/2 t ground cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup butter, room temperature
Preheat oven to 375. Fit pie crust into the pie plate.
In a large bowl, gently mix sliced apples, lemon juice, both sugars, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Once it is blended well, pour into the pie crust.
Prepare topping by mixing all the ingredients for the topping in a medium bowl with a pastry cutter or a fork until coarsely crumbled and all the dry ingredients are incorporated. Sprinkle the topping over the apple mixture in the prepared pie crust.
Bake at 375 for 50 minutes. (If your crust starts to get too brown, cover just the crust with foil and continue baking. The pie will be bubbly around the edges when it is done. Let the pie cool (if you can). It will set up as it cools! Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream if you so desire, but why wouldn't you?!?
