crumb crust apple pie recipe @cleverlyinspired (1) Sometimes….I bake it just so I can smell it….all warm, and cinnamony, it is perfection. If you haven’t baked a pie before…this one is a great one to try. The crust on top is more of a cobbler crust….so no rolling out the top crust. I think it makes for a lighter pie too…when you don’t have a double crust.
The best apples to use are granny smith….they hold up to baking and sugar on their own…and give a great tart flavor. The steps are simple…go ahead and try :)
