ELLEN'S SIGNATURE APPLE PIE

I don't know why pie dough intimidates me, but it always has. I had a frozen single pie crust on hand and some apples but I did not want to deal with making a second crust. So I took a little of this and a little of that and came up with my new concoction. It is absolutely to die for and the best part--it isn't overly sweet!

How to Make ELLEN'S SIGNATURE APPLE PIE

Step-by-Step

  • 1As you slice the apples, place them in a large bowl with a half to one teaspoon lemon juice to prevent them from turning brown. Stir them around to coat.
  • 2Add the sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt to the apples and mix thoroughly.
  • 3Place apples in prepared pie shell.
  • 4FOR THE TOPPING: In a medium bowl, combine cold butter, brown sugar, and flour with a pastry blender until mixture resembles fine- to medium-sized crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs over the top of the apples.
  • 5Place the pie on a cookie sheet to catch any drips, and bake in a preheated 400-degree oven for one hour.

    Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
