Crumble Top Apple Pie

The other day I spilled apple juice all over my refrigerator and was forced to remove the”Science Projects” growing there.  Not really that bad. I exaggerate! Cleaning the refrigerator is one of those tasks I wish I had a maid service to do it for me.

I went a little overboard and cleaned the freezer too.  Found a pie shell that needed to used.  So I decided to make an apple pie. It is easy for me to make a quick apple pie because I have apple pie filling I made in my food storage.

Because I only had one pie crust I decided to make a one crusted apple pie.  I never can remember if it is called Dutch Apple or French Apple. So confusing…. I am going to call it Crumble Top Apple Pie. It is much easier for me to remember. Easier for all. I am suspect!

 There are a few tricks to making the perfect crust: 

One of them is grease the pan with butter before adding the crust.   It will keep the crust from going soggy. 
Another trick it is brush the bottom crust before adding the fruit with egg white.
This will prevent the juices from soaking through the crust.

Use these tricks with a store bought crust that you can roll out.  Using a pie crust in a pan will be hard to butter under the crust but you can use the egg white wash very easily. 

No more soggy pies! Yeah!

The Crumble Top Apple Pie is one of the easiest pies to make.  Fill it with fresh apples, or canned pie filling. Top with crumble topping.  Add a little vanilla ice cream with a drizzle of caramel sauce.  Crumble Top Apple Pie will be your one of your family’s favorites too!
