Deep Dish Apple Crumb Pie

Over the years one of the many memories I hold dear as a child, is watching my Mama in the kitchen.  Her ability to make mouth watering , picture perfect pies has always amazed me. Her crust could of won a blue ribbon every time! I've had this deep, heart shaped dish for years....It makes a wonderful pie!
For this pie I peeled, cored and sliced 8 to 10 apples. Put them in a large pot with about 2 cups water and cook until they are heated all the way through. Add 1 cup sugar and 1 tsp. apple pie spice. Thicken with corn starch and pour into your pie shell. Then I make a brown sugar topping, which consists of 1 stick melted butter, 1 cup brown sugar, and 1 cup flour. Mix til crumbly and sprinkle over apples. Bake @ 350 for about 45 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.

My Mama use to say, "The more you bake the more you become good at telling it's ready just by the smell that fills the kitchen."
My Mama always made cinnamon sticks with the left over pie dough. All you do is spread them out thin, sprinkle cinnamon sugar on top and bake in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes. So simple and oh so good!

Pie crust Recipe:
1 cup of Crisco
2 tsp. salt
2 2/3 cup flour
8 to 10 Tb. cold water

Mix your ingredients until it forms a ball. Add flour as needed. Flour your counter top and roll it out. This recipe will make 2 crusts.

Make some memories with your kids and let them watch you......Give them the extra dough and let them make their own creation. Just have fun!
