via Epicurious

What You’ll Need:

  • (For the crust) 1 ½ cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 6 tbsp butter, melted
  • (For the Filling) 3 1/4lbs Granny Smith Apples (about 5 medium sized, sliced thin)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
    (For the Topping)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp chopped cold butter

The How-To: 

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F
  2. (Crust) Mix the graham cracker crumbs, sugar & butter together until combined fully. Grab your pie plate & grease it so your sides won’t stick. Press crust mixture against the sides of your pie plate.
  3. Bake the pie plate for 10 minutes, then take out to cool.
  4. (For the Filling) Peel the apples, and slice them thin (I used a mandolin, it super helped and made my coworkers think I was playing a small instrument)
  5. While you’re peeling the apples, toss them with some lemon juice so they don’t brown, and when you’re done throw all the other ingredients in and mix to coat evenly 🙂
  6. Pour into cooled pie crust – wait for the topping!
  7. (For the topping) Using a fork or a hand-masher thing, take chopped up cubes of butter & all the other ingredients and mash them together until it makes a crumbly topping that isn’t too chunky – or until it looks like wet sand
  8. Spread evenly over the top of the pie filling
  9. Cover whole pie with tinfoil and bake for 40 minutes
  10. Reduce the oven temp to 350°F, then bake for another 45 minutes
  11. Cool for an hour and then EAT.

Apple pies are never simple, but they’re so super worth the time.
I know it’s not technically “apple pie” season, but it was delicious and I had lots of apples and it was wonderful. No one at work complained! 🙂

Also, be careful when you use a mandolin (kitchen tool, not instrument). They’re dangerous and I hurt my finger. Oops. The pie survived!

Catch you on the flips-pied…
Okay I’m sorry for that one.
