It’s been awhile since I last participated in #SundaySupper but when I saw it was an Autumn Apple Party theme I just knew I had to try and make it work. We LOVE apples around here. In pretty much any way, shape or form.
If you’re not familiar with #SundaySupper, the idea is that we all need to take the time, even if it’s just once a week, to get back to the family dinner table and share our time with family. For generations before ours, it was a weekly tradition and it’s something that we hope to make a tradition once again in households across the globe. And how timely is it this week since this Monday is also National Family Day that encourages families to eat together!
This time I chose an Apple Crumb Streusel Pie. Sure, there are lots of apple pie recipes but this is one from my grandmother and it is SO easy and delicious. Don’t let the picture fool you…it kind of fell apart for the picture but has a subtle sweetness without being over the top.
One trick I have is to make up pie kits so that I can take advantage of prime apple season and prepare all the ingredients I need to make a delicious apple pie any time of the year. Making a kit is simple. Just prepare your apple filling just like you normally would but instead put it in a resealable gallon size bag, label and throw in the freezer! Do the same for the crumb topping and also the pie crust. You can keep them all in a larger bag so that all you have to do is grab it, let it thaw in the refrigerator for a few hours, assemble and bake. Easy peasy! This is perfect for when you need a dessert for a special occasion (or just because) and are short on time.
Here’s the recipe so you can make your own kits and pies too!
- 4 large apples
- ½ recipe plain pastry (use your favorite recipe or refrigerated dough if you like)
- ½ C sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- ¾ C flour
- 1/3 C butter
- Peel apples (I don’t always do this because I’m lazy sometimes—it actually tastes ok!)
- Arrange apples in pastry lined pie pan. Sprinkle with ½ C sugar mixed with cinnamon. Sift remaining ½ cup sugar with flour. Cut in butter until crumbly. Sprinkle over apples. Bake in 450° oven for 10 minutes, then at 350° for 40 minutes until golden on top.
For Kits: Prepare apples then combine sugar and cinnamon mixture with apples. Spoon into gallon size bag, seal and label. For crumb topping, combine flour, sugar and butter in medium bowl until crumbly as described. Transfer to quart size bag, seal and label. For homemade pie crust, prepare according to directions, roll into ball, flatten, transfer to quart size bag, seal and label. If desired, put all three bags in larger gallon size bag, label and freeze for up to three months.
