Since I’ve been eating apples by the dozen lately, my sweet husband bought me an apple ‘corer/slicer’ for Christmas and I absolutely love it! As I opened it he said “now you can make apple pie!” so last night I decided to make him some!
I threw it together in about 15 minutes and had it in the oven baking away making our whole house smell like apple pie in no time! There’s something about the smell of homemade pie baking in the oven that makes your house feel warm on a cold winter day!
1 frozen deep dish pie crust
6-7 medium apple, peeled and sliced (I used Macintosh)
1/4 cup lemon juice (I used lime because I realized I didn’t have any lemons!)
1/3 cup sugar of your choice (I used coconut sugar)
3 tbsp. flour
1 tbsp. cinnamon
1 cup oats
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar of your choice (again, I used coconut sugar)
1 tbsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. (I always use convection so I heated my oven to 325)
First peel and slice your apples and place them into a microwave safe dish. Toss apples in lemon juice (to prevent them from browning). You could also use lime juice or orange juice for this step. Now to make things a little quicker, I microwaved my apples for about 5 minutes until they were semi-soft.
Next, stir in sugar, flour and cinnamon and pour into your pie crust.
For the topping, I prefer making a crumble instead of putting a second pie crust on top so I just mixed together oats, butter, sugar and cinnamon and crumbled it on top of the pie.
Bake pie for about 30-40 minutes or until the apples are bubbling and the crust is starting to brown. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before serving and enjoy!
If you make it, let me know what you think!
