no fancy story behind this one. we were walking through the grocery store today, and matt wanted an apple pie. instead of buying one, i decided to make one.
once again – i know, i should be making my own crust. but as previous discussed, i’m scared of dough. i have a pending dough date with a friend soon who will hopefully show me how to get over that fear. but until then, i’m sticking with publix brand.
the filling is pretty easy. because apples have so much moisture already in them, you only have to add a couple of things to make a kick ass apple pie. this is a modification of a recipe i found on the food network.
4 granny smith apples
1 cup fine sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
*crumble topping: i have a TON of this in my freezer. i made the recipe a long time ago, and it makes a lot. so i froze it, and use it as i need it.
preheat oven to 400 degrees F. peel, core and slice apples. mix apple slices with sugar, flour and cinnamon. place apple mixture in pie shell. Place second pie crust on top and form to the edges of the pie plate. cut slits in the top crust to allow for steam to release in oven. add crumble topping. bake for approximately 30 to 40 minutes, until pie is fully baked and apples are tender.
