Rosie Makes An Apple Pie.

Whenever Mr. Hawthorne visits his Mommie in the fall, he always comes home with bushels of apples. He gives some away, and I make lots of applesauce, among other things. And Tuesday, I made apple pie.
My ingredients: Apple filling: juice of one lemon 5 apples, peeled and sliced 3/4 cup sugar 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup flour 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg After slicing apples, pour lemon juice over top to keep from browning. Mix dry ingredients. Layer apples and sprinkle dry ingredients over top. Continue layering and sprinkling dry ingredients. Pour leftover lemon juice over pie. Crumble topping: 1/2 stick butter, sliced 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 cup pecans Process ingredients and sprinkle on top. Bake in preheated 350 for 50 minutes. You may need to put a foil tent over pie halfway through baking. Let rest at least 30 minutes before slicing.
Mr. Hawthorne peeled, cored, and sliced the apples in one fell swoop with this handy little gizmo. If you find yourself having to peel a lot of apples, I would highly recommend investing in one of these. I got mine from a neighbor's Pampered Chef party.
Layer, sprinkle, layer, sprinkle, layer, sprinkle...
Pour lemon juice over top.
Next, I prepared my crumble: 1/2 stick butter, sliced 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 cup pecans. Process.
Sprinkle crumble over top and bake. You may want to put a foil tent over the pie halfway through the baking time.
I didn't tent my pie and it looks too brown on top, but it didn't taste burned at all.
Best served hot with ice cream.
Now this was a pie. It's pie. It's streusel. It's delicious. Don't ask me why I have three recipe cards below. I was unable to put a picture on the card from my laptop, but then was able to put it in from my desktop. And now I have three recipe cards and when I go to edit my post to get rid of one of the cards, there's nothing there to edit. This is confuzzling. It's always something. If it's not one thing it's your mother.

I Sandra Lee'd the crust, Donna. I used Pillsbury's rolled pie crust. They come two to a box. And it was a deep dish - 1 inch deep pie dish.

I never use the prepared crusts in a pie tin. Too shallow and they taste like crap. The Pillsbury is good in a pinch. It's for a 9-inch pie, so it takes care of a deep dish.
