Baking with Jenny: Apple Pie with a Crumble Topping!


I made an apple pie with a crumble topping and thought I'd share the recipe. I've never made a pie before and it wasn't too bad! (Heads up, this is for a 9 inch pie!)

Pre-heat oven to 425

CRUST:

  • 1 cup 2 T Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/3 cup Mazola Corn Oil
  • 2 T COLD water

Mix flour salt, oil together. Add water. Roll between wax paper. Put into pie plate.

APPLE MIXTURE:

  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • Dash of Salt
  • 6 cups thinly sliced pared tart apples (about 6 medium apples)
  • 2 T Butter

Mix sugar, flour, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt. Stir in apples. Turn into pastry-lined pie plate. dot with margarine.

CRUMBLE TOPPING:

1 cup flour

1/2 cup firm butter

1/2 cup brown sugar

Mix flour, butter, brown sugar together until crumbly. Put on top of apples in pie plate. Put 3 pieces of aluminum foil (about 3 inches wide) just around the edges of the pie crust to prevent it from burning. Bake for 40 - 50 minutes at 425. The last 10 minutes add another square of aluminum foil on the top to prevent the top from burning!

If you try it, let me know how it turns out! :)
