Monday Yums!

I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving! I can’t believe that it will already be December this week. In the past week and a half, my awesome husband and I have done the following things:

- Moved out of our apartment
- Moved into a townhome
- Painted almost the entire place
- Unpacked and cleaned
- Hosted our super wonderful friends Josh and Ashley for Thanksgiving dinner and had an absolute blast! :)

So, now that I’m (finally) back to the blog, I have to post this apple pie recipe that I use every Thanksgiving. It’s Paula Deen (more butter!) so you know it’s amazing. Every year I've made it, it's been a hit.

Crunch Top Apple Pie

(This photo is the actual pie I made this Thanksgiving...doesn't it look delish?)

Dough and Filling:
- Dough for a double crust 9-inch pie (homemade, frozen, or refrigerated)
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Dash salt
- 3 1/2 cups peeled, chopped cooking apples
- 1 (16-ounce) jar applesauce
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons butter, chopped into small pieces

Crunch Topping:
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- Dash salt
- 1 tablespoon butter, at room temperature

1.) Preheat oven to 425º F.
2.) Line a 9-inch pie pan with half of dough.

3.) Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Stir in apples, applesauce, and lemon juice.

4.) Spoon apple mixture into pie pan and dot with butter.

5.) Cut remaining crust into strips; arrange in a lattice design over top of pie.

6.) For crunch topping, combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Using a fork, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.

7.) Sprinkle over top of crust.

8.) Bake for 10 minutes at 425ºF, then reduce heat to 350º F and continue to bake for about 45 minutes, or until crust and topping are golden brown.

Enjoy! I promise, you will LOVE this!

  2. Allison - I always use granny smith apples. However, any baking apple will do! :)
