Apple Pie

I had extra apples in my pantry and I came across this apple pie recipe from Shivapriya and the incident that led to its making.I had all the ingredients and decided to make it though with certain changes.


Pie Crust:
I used readymade pie crust mix to make two 9" crusts.

Apples:2 big
Butter:1/2 tbsp cold unsalted and cubed
BrownSugar:2 tbsp
Cinnamon powdered:1/2 tspn
Nutmeg:1/2 tspn
Cornstarch:1 tbsp
Lemon Juice:1/2 lemon

Crumble Topping:
Flour:1/2 tbspn
Cinnamon:1/4 tspn
Oats:1/4 tbspn
Butter : small piece,unsalted and cold

Brushing the top
Milk: 1-2 tspn
Cinnamon-sugar mix:1-2 tspn


Prepare pie crusts using the package directions.

Wash,Peel and chop apples into bite sized pieces.I used golden delicious apples as they are a bit tart.In a bowl mix together,apple pieces,lemon juice,brown sugar,cinnamon,cornstarch and nutmeg.The cornstarch is added to absorb the juices a bit and prevent overflowing during baking.

In another bowl mix the flour,brown sugar and old-fashioned oats.You can crush or roll oats prior to mixing.Cut or shred the cold,unsalted butter into this and mix well.The original recipe had no oats,but I added it.I had already made plum crumble with the oat-flour crumble topping so I gave this pie the same as well.

Fit a rolled out pie crust into a pie pan and fill with the apple mix. Top this mix with cold unsalted butter cut into cubes.The original recipe calls for mixing the apple filling with unsalted butter at room temperature.But mine was cold.So I cubed it and topped the apple mix with it.

Top the apple-butter layer with crumble topping. It will look like this.

Cover the pie with the second pie crust.You can cover it partially using criss-cross pattern or you can completely cover it and put slits for the steam to escape.I did the latter.

Brush the pie with milk and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mix.

Now bake the pie first at 425F for 12 to 15 minutes and then at 350F for 50-55 minutes.

Cool and cut into wedges.Serve as such or with ice-cream or whipped cream.
