Last week when the kids had a half day of school and friend and I drove them up to our favorite apple orchard. This marks the 14th year we have been to the orchard, but this time was a little different.
The kids are aware of the disappearance of the UVA student and saw a few search and rescue dog teams on property.
I pray for that family and the community and hope justice is served and the family can get some closure. However, despite the dark cloud, literally and figuratively this visit we ended up with 27 pounds of apples, so I need to start diving into my Apple Recipes Round Up post. T
he first apple recipe I made with our apples, is an Apple Crumble Pie recipe I found and adapted on Allrecipes. com.
Apple Crumble Pie Recipe
This is such an easy apple pie recipe but so flavorful my family is asking for me to make it again. We used Jonagold apples as that is what is in the season but you can mix and match depending on the tartness you prefer.
Grab a seat and get the kids peeling apples because you are going to want to double this recipe. I definitely think this apple pie recipe is going to make an appearance on our Thanksgiving menu this year.
Do I need to peel the apples for an Apple Crumb Pie?
The most tedious part is peeling those apples but really it is worth it. The apples we brought home were so big I only had to peel 4 apples. Here is an apple pie recipe that we don’t peel the apples:Easy Apple Pie Recipe Great for Cooking Apples
Be sure and mix all the flavors together before adding the sliced apples into your pie crust, frozen pre-made crust is what we used. By doing this it draws more juices and evenly distributes the flavors.
The recipe tells you to arrange the slices, I don’t have the patience so I just evenly distributed them in the crust.
Not for the crumble, using a pastry blender is the easiest way to do this and use some muscles to get good crumbs.
Top your apples with the crumbles and bake. Told you this is easy. It is best to bake your pie on a cookie sheet to collect any drippings.
Done, allow to cool and serve warm or at room temperature. I did not get a picture but be sure and offer Vanilla Ice cream too.
My family would have eaten the whole pie in one seating if I did not stop them so I would have something to photograph the next day.
