Apple Crumb Pie – Yum!

I wanted to send this to a friend on Twitter, but it’s a tad too long for a DM, so here it is:

Apple Crumb Pie

Pie: Pie Shell, 507 Apples-peeled and cubed, 1/2 cup Sugar, 1 tsp. Cinnamon

Topping: 1/2 cup Sugar, 3/4 cup Flour, 1/3 cup Butter (5 1/3 tbs)

Put apple cubes in pie shell. Mix sugar and cinnamon and pour over apples.

Mix sugar, flour and butter together in mixer. Crumble over apples.

Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes.

And that’s it! It’s yummy. I have my mother-in-law to thank for this recipe, rest her soul.
