The cookbook said “Easiest Ever Apple Pie”. However, some people take issue with this because the top doesn’t have a traditional pie top crust. I say, if you bake it, you can call it whatever the hell you want.
Let’s get started.
6 apples, peeled and sliced *
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg, beaten
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
sprinkling of cinnamon
* A note about the apples: Delicious apples aren’t the best for pies. They tend to get mushy. Go with Granny Smith, Jonathan, ‘Cortland, or Macintosh. (I use Granny Smith. Haven’t branched out yet.) Honey crisp are also good, but use less sugar. Slice the apples thin, or nuke them first to make them less crunchy at the end of baking. Unless that’s your thing.
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place apples in the bottom of a greased 9 inch pie pan. (Or store bought graham cracker crust, like me)
2) Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, egg, and salt. Pour over apples. (Use a knife to spread mixture all over the apples)
3) Pour melted butter over top (this can get messy, but fun!) then sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake for 40 minutes.
