3. Apple Crumb Top Pie. Oh, yeah. This is really good. You can see that Mr. Muddling and I killed off a quarter of it at lunchtime today. It was SO worth it!
I like a lot of apples in the pie, so I use one full can and half of another. (You can always freeze that other half and then you're ahead of the game next time around.)
And I have the most amazingly easy pie crust. It does not have to be rolled out. You just sort of pat it into the pie pan and up the sides. Perfect every time.
The recipe for that is:
TENDER PIE CRUST
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cooking oil
2 tablespoons milk
Add liquid to flour mixture. Press into pie pan.
You may fill and bake or prick and bake to fill with unbaked filling.
I just put all the dry ingredients in the mixer bowl, and then as soon as they are mixed - slowly pour in the oil/milk mixture and let the mixer run until you have lots of lovely crumbs.
1/2 cup (one stick) butter
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar.
Again, I let my darling little mixer do the work for me.
Hope you're having a simply wonderful day!
Hugs and kisses,
