Cinnamon Crumb Apple Pie

There are so many versions of apple pie out there. I would have to say I like almost all of them. Here is one that is always a hit. I have to admit, I use store bought pie crust. I have made my own, but find it easier and less messy to buy store bought!

Ingredients for filling:

ready made pie crust (2)
5 granny smith apples, peeled and diced
3/4 cup of sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
8 ounce chunky applesauce
1 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. of butter

Crumb Topping

3 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp of sugar
1 tsp. of cinnamon
1 Tbsp room temp butter

Preheat over to 425. Please 1 pie crust into a pie plate. Bake for 8 minutes. This will keep your bottom from being soft. (you may need to poke whole in the crust after 4 minutes) Remove from oven. Reduce heat to 350. In a large bowl mix together your dry ingredients for filling. Next mix in the applesauce & apples. Pour in to pie pan. Drizzle with lemon juice and dot the top with butter. Place second pie crust over top of filling. Crimp together with a fork. Also poke several holes on top crust with fork to release steam during baking. Mix the crumb topping together and sprinkle over crust. Bake an additional 45 minutes.
