- 1 1/2 pounds of apples, I used Granny Smith, about 3 large
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
- 4 Tablespoons cold unsalted butter, sliced into small pieces
- 1 refrigerated pie crust, or your own homemade
Preheat your oven to 450 degrees, roll your crust on a lightly floured surface, then transfer to you baking sheet. I used my pizza stone.
Mix flour, sugar, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
Peel, core and slice your apples and lay them in the center of the crust leaving a border about 1 1/2 inch big.
With a pastry blender, or two knives, “cut” the butter pieces into the flour mixture, mix until crumbly.
Fold edges up and pleat to hold filling in.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until crust is golden brown and apples are tender.
You can serve warm or cold, but may I suggest warm with a scoop of ice cream?
