Last week I found this recipe on This Week for Dinner's website. I thought this was a genius idea because you don't need to make a separate crust for the pie. I don't know if I've attempted to make homemade crust. Usually I use the store bought variety.
This pie is easy to put together. Although it called for peeling the apples, I left a little peel on which added color when the apples peeked out of the crust. Which was pretty cool looking. This is not a traditional pie. Instead the crust is more like a cobbler then apple pie like. This pie would be good with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or even cinnamon ice cream. Yum!
- Sliced apples, sliced but not too thin, peeled
- 1-2 Tablespoons of cinnamon sugar
- 1 1/2 sticks melted butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 beaten egg
- Fill a pie plate or any 8×8 casserole dish/pan with sliced apples. Only the center can be slightly above level with the top of dish or the topping will spill over the sides, so don’t get carried away.
- Sprinkle the apples with about 1 Tbsp. cinnamon sugar. (More or less depending on what you like.)
- Mix together the butter, sugar, flour and egg.
- Pour the mixture evenly over apples, sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar if desired.
- Bake at 350 degrees F until deep golden brown – around 40-45 minutes or so.
- Enjoy with whipped cream, ice cream, or by itself.
