It might not be apple pie time, but I wonder if there is ever a time that apple pie isn't delicious. Today, I have a simple, yet scrumptious recipe!
I made this apple pie because I had an overabundance of apples laying around. When you have too many apples or they are starting to go bad, this is a great way to use them up.
You can make your own pie crust or be lazy like me and buy the refrigerated kind.
Peel and slice your apples in thin slices. I typically use my apple slicer/peeler/corer, but silly me, I already packed it for our move. I had to use just a knife. Boo!
Mix together 1 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 tablespoons flour. Pour on apples and mix till all the apples are well coated.
Pour your apples into your prepared pie crust. I used about 4 cups of apples and it pretty much filled my pie shell.
Now for the topping: combine 1 stick of softened butter, 1 cup brown sugar and 1 cup of flour. Mix together until crumbly. Carefully place topping on apples.
Below is a picture of the apple pie with topping on it prior to being cooked.
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
