Apple Crumb Pie

Last night, the Braves lost their final game of the playoffs, meaning they are out of the running for the World Series.  Will's heart is broken and so is mine.  So today, I decided that if we can't celebrate baseball today, we need to celebrate the second-most American icon--apple pie.

I took this recipe directly from one of my favorite blogs, Clover Lane, so I can't take any credit for it.  But it was easy-peasy and used about 5 or so medium-large apples, which we happen to have a lot of these days.  Will hasn't tasted it yet, but I may have snuck a few out-of-the-oven bites and can say even with my burned tongue that it is delicious.


Apple Crumb Pie

1 9" pie shell (I used a Pillsbury roll out pie crust.)
6 cups thinly sliced apples
1 TBS lemon juice
2/3 cup white sugar
2 TBS all purpose flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
2/3 cup all purpose flour
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
4 TBS butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place sliced apples in a large bowl.  
Sprinkle with lemon juice.
Add white sugar, 2 TBS flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Toss together until apples are well coated.

In a small bowl mix together 2/3 cup flour and brown sugar and cut in butter until mixture in crumbly.

Cover loosely with foil and bake for 25 minutes.  Take off foil and bake for another 25 minutes or until top in golden brown.
