If you follow my blog then you know how I feel about pie, I don’t really like pie and I haven’t made enough of them to feel comfortable making them but I’m getting there. This pie was super easy and was a big hit for Thanksgiving, even my son Zach who is not the most talkative guy, went on and on about how good this pie was, that’s when you know it’s a success. There have already been requests for a repeat of this pie so if you’re pie shy like me then give this one a try, I think you’ll like it!
9″ single pie crust (I used a Marie Calendars frozen pie crust which was surprisingly good)
6 – 7 cups cored, peeled and sliced apples (this is about 6 – 7 apples)
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
1 For pie, mix sugar and cinnamon and toss with sliced apples.
2 Place sugar coated apples in pie crust, they will mound up above edges of pan.
3 Mix streusel ingredients with a pastry blender or two forks until you have pea sized pieces. Top apples in pan generously with topping.
4 Set pie on cookie sheet. Bake at 400 for about 50 minutes. Check pie periodically and cover with aluminum foil if browning too much. Let cool slightly before cutting.
