All American Apple Pie
My 11 year old requested apple pie for Thanksgiving this year. This was my first attempt. I will never buy apple pie ever again. I followed the suggestion from other reviewers and cooked the apples for about 15 minutes on medium heat with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. I also added about 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves and 1/2 teaspoon more of cinnamon to the filling. For the topping I used 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/4 cup of quick cooking rolled oats and a 1/4 teaspoon each of cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg in addition to the other topping ingredients. Ensure that the butter is cold. I used salted butter. I put all the topping ingredients in the food processor and pulsed until it resembled fine crumbs then spread it all on top of the filling. It may look like a lot of topping but just pile it on anyway. I baked for exactly 45 minutes. It was amazing. Between the three of us, the entire pie was gone by 9 pm :-)!
