Easy As Apple Pie

I've now made 2 apple pies in the past month and they were tasty! The recipe is actually quite simple, and mostly because I used pre-made pie crusts (although making the crust isn't too hard).  I've been wanting to post a recipe to take a break from all the wedding posts I've done recently. I have many favorite recipes and the majority of them are baked goods or desserts :) Personally, I like apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a cold glass of milk!

The Crust:
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup oil
2 TBsp milk
1 1/2 TSp sugar
1 TSp salt

Mix ingredients with an electric mixer. Have a surface where you can cover it in flour so the dough doesn't stick to the counter as you roll out the dough with a floured rolling pin. If you used the store bought crust, just unroll it and place into a greased 9-inch pie plate.

The Filling:
2-6 apples (depending on size: I used 2 large Macintosh apples in one and 4 Granny Smith in the other)
3/4 cup sugar
3 TBsp flour
3/4 TSp cinnamon
1/2 TSp nutmeg
1/4 TSp allspice (optional)

Mix all the dry ingredients together before adding in the apples. Make sure the apples are completely coated. Pour into the pie plate and spread out evenly, pushing the apples down into the plate.

Topping #1:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter

Once the butter has reached room temperature mix together with the flour and sugar. It will become a soft doughy looking mixture. Spread with a spatula on top of the pie filling.

Topping #2:
1/3 cup flour
4 TBsp butter, melted
2 TBsp orange juice (or lemon juice)
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 TSp ground ginger
1/2 TSp ground cinnamon
1/4 TSp salt

Once the butter is melted, mix in the other ingredient in order given. Spread on top of the pie filling.

Bake: 350 F for 45-60 minutes
Place the pie on a cookie sheet- so nothing spills.
Now which topping was your favorite?

Besides milk or ice cream, pie goes very well with the special edition Woodchuck Pumpkin Cider ;)

Even the pups enjoy the smell of apple pie.......
