Katie and I had such a fun time making pies rotogether! Thank you sweet friend for the memories!
For Sunny, who is now compiling her own recipe book and making her own apple pie in her own own home for The Airman, here you go, sweet wonderful daughter! We will miss you this Thanksgiving, so this is for you! Think of us when you eat the apple pie, and I'll definitely be thinking of you!
Grammy's Apple Pie with Crumble CrustPreheat oven to 350 degrees
- 1 store bought pie crust. Prick the bottom with a folk, then bake empty at 350 degree and take it out just as it starts to turn golden brown.
- 5-7 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
- 1 c. sugar
- 3/4 c flour
- 1/2+ c butter
In a large mixing bowl, mix sliced apple with 1/2 c sugar and sprinkle in cinnamon. Pour apple mixture into the pre-baked pie shell. Dot apples with butter.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine flour, butter remaining sugar, by cutting the butter into the four and sugar with a fork until the mixture is the consistency of a crumble throughout. Pile the crumble mixture on top of the apples, using your hands to gentle guide and pat the mixture onto the sides on the mound of apples.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Increase oven temp to 450 degrees and bake until the pie is golden brown on top, about 10 more minutes.
