|French Apple Pie||
This pie crust is great for all sorts
of pies, see our
No Rolling Pin Required Page for additional ideas.
This is the quickest and most flavorful
apple pie you'll ever make. The longest time will be spent peeling
and slicing the apples. As for the type of apple used - Granny Smith
or McIntosh work best.
For the apple filling:
2 lbs apples
2/3 cup brown sugar (can adjust to taste)
2 tbs flour
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbs butter
Peel and slice the apples, toss with sugar, flour and cinnamon. Place in prepared pie crust, dot with butter and top with streusel topping.
If you do not want the edges of your crust to get to brown, wrap the edges of your pie plate with aluminum foil. (You'll need to check the pie the last 10-15 minutes and remove the foil if the edges are too light.) The pie bakes at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until the apples are tender when pierced with a fork.
For the crust -
this makes a 9 to a 10-inch pie:
Melt the butter and add the remaining
ingredients – set aside for 5 minutes and break into crumbs with a fork.
Sprinkle over top of apple filling.
