Apple Crumble Pie
This is a fabulous recipe for Apple Crumble Pie that includes a home made recipe for pie crust. Make the crust from scratch. It is so much better than anything you could buy at your grocery store, and the ability to make a good crust is one sign of real culinary skill. Although it takes time and patience to make a really great crust, even a beginner can turn one out that is far superior to any thing you could purchase. So be sure to try the recipe at the web site.
This recipe is also chock full of great apples, some of which are not peeled. This choice is great because apple skins greatly increase the amount of fiber that you get from the apples. And fiber is sadly lacking in the food plans of most of us, so any way we can bump up that important component of our diet is a good plan. As well, two types of apples are suggested for this recipe, any combination of Pink Lady, Fuji and Granny Smith. When I was growing up, we just used whatever apples were on sale, but if you can afford to splurge, choose a combination of apples. This ensures a depth of flavor that you cannot get with just one apple variety and also a nice mixed texture of more and less firmness throughout the pie. The crumble topping is great, and includes walnuts. Walnuts add a slightly bitter bite to the streusel, and makes a nice complement to the apples, which tend to become very rich and sweet when they are baked.
This is a lovely pie, with three layers that begin in a home made crust. Various kinds of apple create textural and flavor interest in the filling and the streusel’s inclusion of walnuts adds a bite that emphasizes the seasonings and sweetness of the fruit. Try this recipe soon; it may become your apple pie go to. Enjoy!
