|Best compliment ever, the hubs said, |
"This is the best apple pie I've ever had,
I need to go back to Fred Meyer and get more apples!"...
Prep: 20 Mins.
Bake: 1 Hr.
7 medium apples
(I used Kroger, aka Fred Meyer Brand), peeled, cored and cut into 1/8-1/4" slices
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1-1/2 tsp apple pie spice
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 TB all-purpose flour
1/2 cup old fashion oats (not quick cooking)
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup melted, salted butter, slightly cooled
1 large egg, beaten
Preheat oven to 350F. Set a 10" glass pie plate aside.
Add all filling ingredients to a medium bowl, toss to combine and set aside to allow them to meld for 10 minutes; toss occasionally.
In the meantime, add all the topping ingredients to a small bowl; mix to combine (it will be paste-like in appearance).
Pour filling mixture into the pie plate, and press slightly to evenly distribute. Add the topping using a fork to evenly distribute and cover apple filling mixture.
Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour, turning half way for even baking.
Let hot pie cool, uncovered, on baking rack for 4 hours before serving to allow filling to fully set.
Serve with French vanilla ice cream.
Store any leftovers covered in refrigerator. ~ Enjoy!
Tip: To reheat at room temp, microwave for 30 seconds; from frig it takes about 50 seconds!
