Unbelievable Apple Pie

The Menu:
Unbelievable Apple Pie


The Original Recipe:
I have so many apples!! I found this recipe online at food.com, and I do think it turned out well. It needed a liquid mixed in with the apples. It didn't say to add any liquid and my pie was drying out. I had to think fast and I actually added some water to the top of my pie while it was baking! YIKES!! It turned out well though, but I have a way to make it better. The Way I Made it My Own follows this one... much better!!

Unbelievable Apple Pie


Prep Time: 20 mins Total Time: 55 mins Serves: 1 Ingredients

1 unbaked 9-inch pie crust
3 -4 cups granny smith apples, sliced
1 (3 1/2 ounce) packages coconut cream pudding mix or 1 (3 1/2 ounce) packages French vanilla pudding mix

Topping

1/4 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)
 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

In mixing bowl, combine apples and pie/pudding mix; toss to coat well.

Place in unbaked pie crust.

In small bowl, mix all topping ingredients until it's crumbly.

Sprinkle over apples and bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes until topping is golden brown and pie is bubbly.

(Try different pudding mixes and fruits for different flavors) I serve it with a scoop of butter pecan or rum raisin ice cream.

 
The Way I Made It My Own:
