Almost Apple Pie

"An old family favourite and my most requested recipe. So easy so good and so tastes like apple pie. The recipe calls for an 8 x 8 baking pan, can be baked in a casserole or as I often do in a pie plate slice and serve as one would apple pie. Using white sugar in the crust has it tasting like pasty. Recently found baking this at a higher temperature until well browned (425 for 40 - 50 minutes) is very like an apple crisp, a delicious version of Almost Apple Pie, both making for great tasting apple desserts."

I was so happy to find this recipe since my pie crust tastes and looks frightful. LOL Read that granny smith apples were good for apple pies so that is what I used, like a little tart flavor so didnt add all the sugar and added a bit of freshly grated nutmeg. The crumble is easy to work with and liked that it wasnt overly sweet. A fantastic dessert that I will make often! Made and reviewed for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.

My family really liked this pie! I made it for Thanksgiving and served vanilla ice cream on top. Deliciousness in every spoonful!

Very good and easy too! We used about 5 apples (mixture of Granny Smith and macintosh). No cinnamon so used Penzy's pie spice instead. Thanks for sharing!

With all the apples from the orchard sitting in my kitchen I had to make some goodies and fast! This used up a few and it was so delicious that I made two more, one for me and one for my neighbor. We loved these pies! I see many more repeats with this one!

This is the truly scrumptious and the easiest dessert recipe I have made. This recipe is just the best, so delicious and just so easy and wonderful. I made this exactly as written and it turned out perfectly. This recipe is so easy that if I can sort out a perfect gluten free version (just as easy) I can make both versions and everyone then everyone in the family will be happy! The perfect apple/pie crumble recipe ever Gerry! Update: I used drained tinned apricots instead of apple and this was scrumptious also!

I really liked the idea that this is so easy to make! On top of that it tastes so darn good you can't leave a piece sitting in the pan for very long. We had it with ice cream and inhaled it! We will have this many times in the future since it was so delicious!
