My friends I am back, and feeling better. I have a GREAT CHEATING APPLE PIE RECIPE for you to try.
This one I so simple and very, VERY easy to bake. A "cheating" pie recipe, with a homemade glazed oatmeal pecan topping. Last Tues our snow fall of 1 inch HA! Became 6 inches! Having a taste for pie I was lucky and had all the makings at home and saved a very hazardous trip to the store. When you have a taste, sometimes you just have to make do! I am sure my farm background and 60 plus years of cooking came in very handy. In joy this taste treat. Comments & ratings are appreciated.
Hugs, Nan

How to Make My"CHEATING APPLE PIE" w/ STREUSAL CRUMB TOP

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pre-Heat oven to 350F.
    Open frozen pie crust dough box.
    Take one out and let it warm up a bit before unrolling,on your floured kitchen counter.
    It will be easier to remove a slice
    of the pie when done.
    Or you can double the recipe and make 2 pies!
    Your neighbor would love a home cooked pie!

    Then unroll the dough and put in a slightly floured pie plate, ready for the canned apples.
    ********* Granny's tip #1:
    A slightly floured pie plate will make it easier to remove a slice, when done.
  • 2Open two cans of ready to use pie apples.
    ********* Granny's tip #2:
    Before adding the canned apples, sprinkle a little flour in the unbaked pie crust.
    Your bottom crust will not be soggy.
    These two tips can be used on most fruit pies.
    Add the canned apples to the pie crust..
  • 3Mix all ingredients for the crunchy
    streusel topping, and spread around
    the top of the apples.
    Place pie in oven and bake.
  • 4Put the coffee pot on!
    A plus ...your kitchen will smell great.
    Put the coffee pot on!
    Your neighbors will come a calling!
    Or if you live close...come on over!!!
  • 5Cut a piece and to taste and enjoy.
    I like mine with a dollop of sour cream.
    YUMMY!!
    You will think you died and went to heaven!
