Homemade Apple Pie - There's Nothing Better!

Over the years I've made a lot of apple pies, but my favorite is from my daughter. She got it from an Amish community cookbook. My family likes a tart pie, so we use Granny Smith for this one.

Apple Crumb Pie

6 tart apples                                  3/4 cup of flour
1 cup of sugar                               1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup butter                               Pastry for one 9 inch pie shell

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Pare apples and cut into eigths.
Mix 1/2 cup of sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle over apples. Mix.
Put apple mixture into unbaked pie shell.

Combine remaining sugar and flour. Add butter and rub together until crumbs are formed. Sprinkle crumbs over apples.

Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes and then reduce temperature to 350 degrees and bake 35 minutes longer.

Reheat just before serving if desired. Delicious served with a sharp cheese (I often do this for breakfast!) or with ice cream.
