Total time
Recipe type: Baked Goods
Cuisine: American
Serves: 1 pie
  • 4 Cups apples, tart
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 3/4 Cup sugar, granulated
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, ground
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup flour, all-purpose
  • 1/4 Cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 Cup nuts, chopped (walnuts, pecans, etc.)
  • 1 pie crust, 9-inch
  1. Core, peel and slice the apples.
  2. Melt the butter and mix the rest in with it. Pour over apples and mix around so the apples are coated.
  3. Put in an unbaked pie shell.
  4. Combine brown sugar, flour, melted butter and nuts.
  5. Spread over top of the filling.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees F. for 50 minutes, or until it is bubbling.
* One-crust apple-crumb pie -- The pie can also be frozen and then baked, right from the freezer, at 360 for 90 minutes.

The pies will keep a very long time in the freezer and not be worse for wear.

* For those who like the quality of home-made pie crusts but the convenience of ready-made, make a bunch of crusts someday when the mood grabs you, and put them in the freezer in a big plastic bag.

: Difficulty: easy.
: Time: 10 minutes preparation, 1 hour baking.
: Precision: approximate measurement OK.
