Don't have time to make a pie crust? Then you might want to try this fast making, crunchy topping, apple pie. I had to put down an amount of apples but use as many as it takes to fill your pie tin.You could also just use a can of apple pie filling. Good plain or with a scoop of ice-cream or cream whip on top before you serve it.
- 4 -6 apples or 4 -6 use 1 can pie filling
- 1⁄2 cup white sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2-1 cup butter
- 1 pinch salt
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Butter pie tin.
- Put apples in pie tin.
- Cover with white sugar.
- Mix flour, brown sugar, butter and salt.
- Put this mixture over apples.
- Bake for 30 minute or until apples are tender and topping is brown.
Needs vanilla or cinnamon ice cream to be perfect - truly enjoyed - made for PAC Spring 2012.
The single reason that I make pies very seldom is that I dislike making the crusts. I would call this a crisp but it doesn't have the oatmeal that is always in the topping of a crisp. I added cinnamon and an accent of ginger to the Splenda that went on the apples and 1/3 cup of Splenda Brown for the ask for 1 cup of sugar in the topping. My own opinion is that that 1 cup would be waaaay to sweet but thats personal taste. I found that it required a longer baking time for the apples to cook to DH's liking ( my slices were about 1/4 inch thick). All of that being said we loved the finished result, it was spicy sweet which is always wonderful with apples and the aroma is a delight in it's self. I'm sure that this same topping and method would be perfect with any fruit that you might want (or have on hand).
