Added: Wednesday, April 22, 2009


1 Unbaked Pie Shell - 10"
10-12 Granny Smith Apples (peeled and sliced thinly)
2/3 Cup Sugar
1 Tsp. Cinnamon
3 Tbsp. Flour
2 Tbsp. Butter
1 Recipe Topping (see below)

1/2 Cup Butter (softened)
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar (firmly packed)
1 Cup Flour

Slice the apples and put into a large bowl. Mix the sugar, flour and cinnamon together. Stir the sugar mixture into the apples and let them stand for about 10 minutes. You will need to stir them once or twice. Put apples into unbaked pie shell. They will be piled very high. Dot with the butter. Sprinkle the topping over the apples.
Bake at 400 for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 375 and continue baking for 45-60 minutes. You will know the pie is done when it starts bubbling over. It makes a big mess in the oven, but it is well worth it!
If the topping starts to get brown, cover it with foil.

Cream the butter and brown sugar together with a fork. Work in the flour to make a crumb mixture. You can do this with a fork, but I find that it works best if I use my fingers. Spread this topping over the prepared apples.
If you want more topping just double this recipe.
