…we attended a fall charity auction the other night, and came home with several big bags of yummy apples. In an attempt to get them used up before they go bad, I have been finding all kinds of uses for them… and by far the yummiest was the fun apple pie that I made, using a recipe that came from my son’s preschool class last year. (in other words…. pretty simple. but amazingly delish!!)
First of all, you can use a pre-made crust, or make you own. (I actually used a pre-made graham cracker crust that we had … and it worked great!) Then wash, peel and slice 8 apples, and place them in a large bowl and mix them up with 3/4 cup sugar, 1/4 t. sale, 1 Tablespoon flour and 1/2 t. cinnamon. Put this mixture into the pie crust.
In another bowl, mix1/3 cup softened butter (you could even go 1/2 cup), 3/4 cup flour and 1/2 cup sugar (you can cut this back a bit as well, if you want). Mix this all up (I just use my hands) and then sprinkle this mixture on top of the apple mixture that is already in the pie pan.
Bake in a 375degree oven for 45 minutes … heaven!!
I then whipped up some yummy homemade ice cream and put in on top of the still warm pie… so good!! I will tell you that this pie is a little “runny” which we thought was odd at first, but it is so good, that you won’t care. (at least no one around here ever complains, lol) Enjoy!!
