I have REALLY been slacking on posting since the holidays but today I've got a special treat that will hopefully make up for it...WARM APPLE PIE. YUMM!!! It's super easy too with only a single bottom crust and a buttery crumbly goodness for the topping... Oh me oh my!!
Pastry for a single crust pie; 9 in- recipe at the bottom for the best pie crust!
6 cups tart apples diced- you can slice them thinly if you prefer, I like mine diced small
2 tbsp. butter; melted2 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp + 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sgar
1/4 cup cold butter
In a large bowl combine the first 6 ingredients & toss gently to coat the apples. Pour into a prepared pie crust; set aside while you prepare topping.
In a small mixing bowl, combine cold butter, flour, & sugar. Cut the cold butter into flour/sugar until you get a pea like consistency. Pour crumb topping over apple filling. Bake @ 375 degrees for about 45-50 minutes or until light golden & bubbly. Cool for about and hour or longer. I prefer it at room temperature. ENJOY!!!
