Apple pie is an American staple and my all time favorite dessert. While it’s the perfect Autumn treat I believe every time is the perfect time for apple pie!

Filling Ingredients:

  1. your favorite homemade pie crusts or 1 ready-made pie crust
  2. 5 1⁄2 cups peeled cored sliced cooking apples
  3. 1tablespoon lemon juice
  4. 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
  5. 1⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
  6. 3 tablespoons flour
  7. 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  8. 1⁄4teaspoon nutmeg

Topping Ingredients: 

  1. 3⁄4 cup flour
  2. 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
  4. 1⁄3cup butter or 1⁄3 cup margarine, room temperature

How To:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Fit pie crust into pie plate.
  3. In a large bowl, mix sliced apples, lemon juice, both sugars, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  4. Pile into crust.
  5. Prepare topping:
  6. In a medium bowl, with a pastry blender or a fork, mix flour, both sugars, and butter until coarsely crumbled.
  7. Sprinkle evenly over apples.
  8. Bake at 375°F for 50 minutes.

Take Note:

  1. I love cold apple pie and am not one for warm apple pie. I know, crazy, but don’t knock it until you try it. After you’ve had your warm slice, stick the rest of the pie in the fridge and have your next slice cold. You can thank me later!
