It was a beautiful day today in Southern Indiana! It was about 70 degrees and just felt wonderful! The guys worked outside, and I went in, and out. I had some apples that had not been eaten, so I decided to make a good old fashion apple pie. My hubby really likes apple pie, and was really glad to see it. We kinda like ice cream too, so why not top our warm apple pie off with it! Yummo!


1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cups vegetable oil
2 tablespoons cold milk
1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar
1 teaspoon salt
6 apples cord and sliced
3/4 cup white sugar
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
2 tablespoons of cornstarch
1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. To make crust: In a large bowl mix together 1 1/2 cups of flour, oil, milk, 1 1/2 tsp sugar and salt until evenly blended. Pat mixture into a 9 inch pie pan, spreading the dough evenly over the bottom and up the sides. Crimp edges of the dough.
3. To make the filling: Mix together 3/4 cup of sugar, 3 tablespoons of flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, lemon juice and cornstarch. Sprinkle over apples and toss to coat. Spread evenly in an unbaked pie shell.
4. To make topping: Using a pastry cutter, mix together a 1/2 cup of flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, and butter until evenly distributed and crumbly in texture. Sprinkle over apples.
5. Put pie in oven on a cookie sheet to catch the juices that may spill over. Bake for 45 minutes, or until done.

I love this recipe, its basic, simple and delicious! Enjoy!

This does look sooo good! I was looking at your blogs and I'm not sure if you did or didn't open up a bakery but if not, you really should consider it. Your cakes are AMAZING! I was wondering how you got your marshmallow fondant so black?
