Apple Crumb Pie

© "So Easy, So Delicious"
Crust and Topping:
1½ C flour
1/2 C sugar
1/2 C butter or margarine
Pinch salt

3 lbs apples (Cortland, Macoun or Baldwin) peeled,
   cored and sliced
1 T lemon juice, or to taste
1/2 C sugar
2 T cornstarch
1 tsp cinnamon

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, butter or margarine and salt. Using your hands, rub ingredients until it resembles fine crumbs. Remove 1 cup of the crumbs and set aside. Pat remaining crumbs in the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Place sliced apples in a large bowl and drizzle with lemon juice. Shake apples so that they are all coated with juice. Combine sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon. Pour over apples. Mix well. Place in the crumb-lined pie plate. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and pour reserved cup of crumb mixture over pie. Bake an additional 30 minutes, or until pie is golden brown. If desired, serve with vanilla ice cream, frozen yogurt or whipped cream.

Hint: This pie is perfect for the person who doesn’t like to make pie crusts. It is easy and delicious.
