Apple Crunch Pie

A new favorite in our house!
Apple Crunch Pie

Apple mixture
½ c sugar
3 T flour
¾ t cinnamon
½ t salt
5 med. apples

After mixing together apple mixture place into pie pan on top of bottom crust you will be using. (I cheat and use Pillsbury's ready made two layer crust that you can get at the grocery store)

Make crumb topping as follows:

crumb topping
1 c firmly packed brown sugar
½ c flour
½ c quick cooking rolled oats
½ c butter, cold
cut together with a pastry mixture
Mix well and place crumb topping on top of apple mixture, then cover with second layer of crust. Make slits into top layer of crust for venting. (I usually use tiny cookie cutters to make pretty designs)

Bake 375 for 50-55 min
Make sure you keep an eye on the crust as it is cooking...about midway or so through cooking, I usually wrap the top edges around the pie with tin foil to prevent over browning or burning.
