Easy Peasy Apple Pie



We had some company on the weekend and of course I couldn't let a post opportunity pass me by. I thought I would pass this recipe on to you because even if your not an accomplished baker, you can do this one. If you would rather not make your own pie crust, you can always use the packaged crust that just requires a bit of water to the mix or easier yet, buy a frozen deep dish pie shell at the market.
I had some crust leftover from the pear pie that I recently made but not enough to make a double crust pie so I found a streusel topped pie recipe. The apples are from our tree and I ran out to pick some. Peel and slice the apples into wedges and arrange the slices in a concentric circle in the unbaked shell. The recipe called for 6 apples but my apples were huge and I probably only used 4.


Sprinkle 1/3 cup of brown sugar on top of the apples. Drizzle with 1/3 cup of whipping cream.

Streusel
In a bowl, stir
1/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Cut in
2 tablespoons of butter with a pastry blender or two knives.
If you want, add 1 tablespoon candied ginger. I did and it was a really nice touch.
Sprinkle the streusel on top of the pie.
Bake in the bottom rack of the oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes.
Reduce heat to 375 degrees for 1 hour or until the topping is golden brown.
Let it cool on a rack and serve with a scoop of icecream.
Have a wonderful day, I'm off to help at the B&B.
