Apple Crumble Pie

After our awesome day apple picking at Jonamac Orchard in Malta, Illinois, we had LOTS of apples to use for today's marathon baking day.

The term 'marathon' is a little misleading, because the two pies we made took less than 45 mintues total with two of is working on the pies.

This recipe is for the Apple Crumble Pie (see tomorrow's post for the Snickers Caramel Apple Pie recipe!)

3 cups peeled, cored, sliced apples (we used Early Fujis for their sweetness)
3/4 c flour
3/4 c sugar
1/2 t cinnamon
1/8 t nutmeg

Toss all of the above together and pour into a prepared pie crust (we used a frozen Sara Lee pie crust).

1/2 c flour 
1/2 c brown sugar (packed)
1/2 stick salted butter (sliced, do not melt/soften)

Combine the above 3 ingredients with a for to creat a crumble.

Pour over the top of the pie. The butter will melt as the pie baked.

Cover loosely with aluminum foil. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes, remove the foil, and bake an additional 25 minutes. Allow to cool for 10-20 minutes before serving. 

Of course, serve with really good vanilla ice cream.

So what does Pinterest suggest we use to clean, like, everything? Dawn and White Vinegar. I'll try anything once.

Here's how it went down:

1) Filled a bathtub with hot hot hot water, 1 c Dawn and 2 c White Vinegar.

2) Folded up the Pack-n-Play, shaking out any crumbs (there are always crumbs), and laid the whole thing down into the hot bath. I ran my hands along the netting and material to agitate any dirt and grime off of them.

3) Allow to soak about 15 minutes. To rinse, I drained out the tub water, then turned on the shower and hopped in to direct the shower head all over the Pack-n-Play to rinse well.

4) To dry, you can either lug it outside, pop it open (upside down) and allow to …
