Warm Apple Pie

I did it! I finally made my husband's favorite dessert...warm apple pie. Not only did I make this pie from scratch, but it turned out delicious. He even had a second helping. I'm all smiles. My husband is not a man of many words, but his actions are always loud and clear. Good job honey, this is the best damn apple pie I've ever tasted. Those were the words his actions sweetly whispered into my ear. I found a recipe on cooks.com and only slightly altered the ingredients. I wish I had more time to bake like before. These days my time is filled with play dates, diaper changes, Sesame Street, and a giant pregnant belly. I wouldn't change any of it for the world.


Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, then at 350 degrees for 45 to 55 minutes. Makes 8 servings.


I frozen pie crust... yep, I didnt make my own crust. Shoot me. :)


2 3/4 lbs. Granny Smith apples (about 4 lg.), pared, cored and thinly sliced
1/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon


1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 c. (1/2 stick) butter, cut into pats
Prepare filling: Combine apples, brown sugar, granulated sugar, flour, lemon juice and cinnamon in large bowl.

Prepare topping: Combine flour, brown sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Cut butter until mixture is coarsely crumbled.

Spoon filling evenly into pie shell. Spoon topping evenly over apples.
Bake pie in preheated oven (400 degrees) for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees. Loosely cover topping with foil to prevent overbrowning. Bake 45 to 55 minutes before slicing.
