Apple Pie

I have never been able to make a good pie crust, so I usually just buy store bought. I saw this recipe for apple pie on Home Based Mom's website & knew it was a recipe for me. For one thing Matt LOVES apple pie & you don't have to roll this one out or worry if it's too dry. It's incredibly easy & super delicious. Matt said he usually doesn't like pie crust, but he loved this one. Definitely a keeper.

Apple Pie
from Home Based Mom

2 C flour

1 C sugar

1 egg yolk

1 tsp baking powder

Mix and add.

2 cubes butter, melted

Press 1/2 of dough into a glass pie plate. Being sure you have an even layer on bottom and up the sides of the pie plate. (no holes!)

7-8 apples - sliced, cored and peeled. I prefer a crisp, tart apple.

Afer pressing 1/2 of pie dough into pie plate, pile apples onto crust. Sprinkle with cinnamon (sorry, no exact measurement - I just sprinkle until it looks like enough, probably a Tablespoon or two) and 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar (or more if you like it sweeter!)

Crumble remaining dough on top by breaking it into small pieces. Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes - 1 hour (Time will vary depending on how thick you slice the apples, you want them tender but not mush! I just stick a fork in to see how tender they are.)

So i made this the other day and it got great reviews. It was really easy and delicious. Yesterday i needed to make a quick desert so i just split the crust recipe in half and made more a cobbler out of it, also got great reviews. The crust tastes more like a sugar cookie but i love sugar cookies!
