Apple Crisp Pie

Recipe by  

"I had an abundance of apples and needed to use them. We love apple crisp but I just made it a few days before. Pie sounded nice, so I combined 4 different recipes to get this one. It has almost a shortbread type crust and is just the right balance of sweet and tart. I had to hurry and write the recipe down so I wouldn't forget it because I will definitely be making this again!"

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a 9-inch pie dish with cooking spray.
  2. To make the crust, beat 1/2 cup of butter with cream cheese in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until thoroughly combined; scrape the sides of mixing bowl occasionally to incorporate all the butter and cream cheese. Beat in 1 1/4 cups flour, the white sugar, and salt on medium-low speed until the mixture looks like coarse cornmeal, about 20 seconds. Increase the speed to medium-high, and beat until the dough begins to clump together, about 30 more seconds.
  3. Lay out a 24-inch piece of waxed paper on a work surface, and scoop the dough out onto the left half of the paper. Form it into a ball, and flatten it into a 6-inch disk; fold the right side of the paper over the dough disk, covering the dough. With the rolling pin on top of the paper, gently roll the dough out into a round crust about 1/8-inch thick; peel off the top half of the waxed paper, turn the dough out onto the prepared pie dish, and fit the dough into the dish. Peel of the remaining portion of waxed paper.
  4. To make the filling, mix together the apples and lemon juice in a bowl. In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour, the cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger together until thoroughly combined, then mix the flour mixture with the apples. Pour the apple filling into the crust.
  5. To make the topping, combine 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 2 tablespoons of flour, and the oats; with a pastry cutter, cut in 6 tablespoons of butter, until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Spoon the topping evenly over the apple filling.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until the apple filling is bubbling and the topping is golden brown, about 40 minutes. If the crust begins to look brown after about 20 minutes of baking, cover the crust edge with a strip of aluminum foil.

My "crisp" was more mushy than crisp but it was delicious.

After topping with vanilla ice cream, I added a sauce made of: 1/2 cup packed brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup butter, melted

I love apple crisp and its so easy but this was fun! I cut the sugar in half and used whole wheat flour. I cooked it a little slower, as suggested, and it turned out fine. Thanks for this recipe, it is a keeper!

Perfect mix! I suggest cooking at a lower temp however. I think I'll try 375 next time. Def a keeper.

Rolling out the dough was not a necessary step. I just poured the "crumbles" out from the mixing bowl into the pie pan and then pressed it into the bottom and up the sides, like I would a graham cracker crust. Quick and easy.
