Apple Crisp Pie

I’m back! That was a crazy couple of weeks. First I got sick and then my blog disappeared. Yep. Just poof! and it was gone. I was working on it one day and then the next it wasn’t there. It was the most puzzling thing ever. I could not fathom where it was…floating on a cloud, took a vaca, was out shopping, perhaps napping? I waited a few days and then had to call a professional in. My daughter. Yep, she is my hero. There was a form that had been downloaded (by her) and the blog just decided that it didn’t like it there. So, the form is gone and the blog rebooted (I like to think a swift kick in the rear) and viola! it is back.

Today was a cold windy day and I really needed an excuse to make an apple pie. Not. I think this was the longest it has ever taken me to make one because I kept taking pictures. Ha. I really admire those food bloggers who cook/bake and make something look perfect then have the patience to take pictures, too! Here’s a piece of pie in their honor.

I like pie with lots of crumbly buttery goodness on the top. I mean you eat the rest for the topping, right?! After I finished making the crumble I thought it would really be good with some sliced almonds added in also. Of course, I didn’t have any and I wasn’t about to ask MrD to go to the store. I mean football was on…goodness. I think I will add them next time. If I remember. I better write this down.

I don’t like a really sweet fruit pie so my sugar is a little light here. At this point you could add another half cup of sugar and one more tablespoon of corn starch. Sometimes I slice the apples or chop them…whatever suits your fancy. I was feeling a bit lazy today and chopped them. Use your favorite apples or a mixture of a few kinds. I used granny smith…love the tartness of them.

The crumb topping comes together real easily if you melt the butter and then just get your hands messy. Get in there and mix it all together until you have coarse crumbs.Apple Crisp Pie

Use your favorite pie crust (I use the Crisco recipe) or a store-bought one works great, too!

I like mine with a dollop of Salted Caramel on the top. MrD loves his with vanilla ice cream and my daughter likes hers with whipped cream. Or maybe you like all three. I’m not gonna judge…go for it!

Don’t forget…a slice of apple pie a day keeps the Dr away! That’s how it goes, right?
