Apple pie baked with a cinnamon crust.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3⁄4 cup melted butter
- 1 egg
- Preheat oven to 350ºF (175ºC).
- Toss apples with 1 tablespoon of sugar, and pour them into a pie plate. Thoroughly mix together 1 cup of sugar with the flour, cinnamon, butter, and egg. Spread this evenly over the top of the pie.
- Bake in preheated oven until the apples have cooked and the topping is golden brown, about 40 to 45 minutes.
I made this into individual little pie plates, so the topping came out sort of like a cookie! I think kids will especially love this. It is also a bit forgiving since I forgot the cinnamon, but was able to sprinkle it over top after cooking with the flavor still delicious! Love the simplicity.
