Vera Brouwer of Maurice, Iowa shares this lovely crumb-topped pie. "It's easy to make, and we like the chunky apple filling," says this grandmother of five.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 50 min. YIELD:6-8 servings

Ingredients

  • Pastry for single-crust pie (9 inches)
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cold butter, cubed
  • FILLING:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 5 cups chopped peeled tart apples (about 5 medium)

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 400°. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2-in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Refrigerate while preparing topping and filling.
  • 2. For topping, in a small bowl, mix sugar and flour; cut in butter until crumbly. For filling, in a large bowl, mix sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add apples and toss to coat. Transfer to pastry-lined pie plate. Sprinkle with topping.
  • 3. Bake 10 minutes. Reduce oven setting to 375°. Bake 40-45 minutes or until the topping is browned and apples are tender. Cover edge loosely with foil during the last 15 minutes if needed to prevent overbrowning. Cool on a wire rack. Yield: 8 servings.
