Apple Crisp Pie


Hi everyone!

Today's recipe is a Delicious and super easy Apple Crisp Pie. I'm making everything from scratch, but feel free to buy the pie Crust if you don't want to make one!

I hope you like this one. This is my family's favorite recipe!

Ingredients for the Pie Crust (Feel free to buy yours at the grocery store if you want)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
3 tablespoons cold vegetable shortening
1 stick cold unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
5 to 6 tablespoons of cold water

Ingredients for the filling:
4-5 green apple
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 tablespoon of Cinnamon
pinch salt
1 pinch ground all spice
1 pinch ground nutmeg
zest of 1 lemon
1-2 tablespoon lemon juice
1/4 cup apple juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Ingredients for the Crisp:

1 1/2 cups old fashion oats
3 tablespoons  flour
1 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg
1 pinch salt
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup unsalted butter


Crust Preparation:

In a large bowl mix the flour, salt, sugar and cinnamon. Mix until the all the ingredients are well combined and then add in the butter cut in pieces, also add the vegetable shortening, mix with a fork or with your hands until the flour gets the texture of coarse bread crumbs. (mix in an electric mixer if you prefer). Slowly add the cold water and knead until all the ingredients come together to form a soft dough. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.(use a electric mixer if you want.)


Filling Preparation:

Wash, core and slice the apples in 1/4 inch slices. In a large bowl, combine the apple slices with the lemon zest and the lemon juice. Season with the sugar, flour, cinnamon: and a pinch of each: salt, nutmeg and all spice. Also add in the Vanilla extract and the apple juice. Mix all the ingredients together and set aside until you are ready to fill the pie.

Crisp Preparation:

Melt the butter.

Combine the old fashion oats with the flour, brown sugar, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Mix together, and add in the melted butter. Stir all the ingredient until well combine and set aside until you are ready to use.

Time to make a pie:

Preheat the oven to 400°F

Spray pie pan with cooking spray.

Divide the dough into two equal size sections. Roll out one of the sections on a lightly floured surface. Roll it out enough to line your pie pan. (Half the dough should be enough to cover a 9-in pie pan.) Freeze the rest of the dough or use it to top the pie instead of the crisp. Dough can be frozen for up to 10 days.

Line your pan with the dough and fill with the apple mixture and dot with 2 tablespoons of butter.

Reduce the oven temperature to 375°F and bake the pie for 35 minutes.

Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F. Top the apple pie with the crisp and dot with 1 tablespoon of butter. Continue to bake at 350°F for 15 minutes or until the Crisp is golden brown.

It can be serve warm or cold and if you want you can serve with some ice cream or whipped cream.

Enjoy!
