~Fun Food Friday...Crumb Topped Apple Pie~

Sorry this is a day late.  We had a wonderful Thanksgiving rejoicing in God's blessings.  On Friday we weren't "Black Friday shopping" =) but we did take our kids on an excursion ...which I'll blog about later!  

I wanted to share this recipe for a pie I made a couple weeks ago.  I guess for some reason it seems easier or faster because it doesn't take a top crust.   I cheated and used store bought crust.   (Which here in Argentina these crusts are a tad smaller [so I couldn't flute the edges] and are made to make quiche or something, but hey, they work when one is in a hurry or has been ill. =)    It was a good pie.

Taste of Home


  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1/4 cup cold water

  • 5 large tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 5 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cold butter


  • In a large bowl, combine flour and salt; cut in the shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 to 1-1/2 hours or until easy to handle.
  • Roll out pastry to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 in. beyond edge of plate; flute edges.
  • For filling, place apples in crust. Combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon; sprinkle over apples.
  • For topping, combine flour and sugar in a small bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over filling. Bake at 450° for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°; bake 50-60 minutes longer or until topping is golden brown and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 8 servings.
  • And as Always...ENJOY!!
