Uncle Roy's Apple Pie

Uncle Roy’s Apple Pie
I saw this recipe in People magazine years ago and immediately tore it out and placed it in my recipe book. Well, I forgot all about it until now.
I am SO glad that I tore it out in the first place because this recipe is my new favorite apple pie recipe! The flavor of it is incredible and the crumb topping is the icing on the cake!

You will need:

2-2 ½ lbs Granny Smith apples (6-8 apples)
½ cup sugar
2 Tbsp flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
¼ tsp salt
1 9 inch pie crust

Crumb Topping:

½ cup light brown sugar (packed)
1 cup flour
½ cup butter (1 stick), cut into 10 slices

 To Make:
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Peel and slice apples thinly. 

 In a large bowl, mix together sugar, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
Add apples and toss until combined. 
Put apples in pie crust. 
Place on a foil lined baking sheet.

Put brown sugar and flour in a bowl. 
Using a pastry cutter or food processor, cut in butter to form crumbs. 
Sprinkle crumbs on pie.

Bake pie for 45 minutes or until apples are tender and crumbs are golden brown. Cover top with foil if topping starts to get too brown.

Take out of oven and let sit to cool and set, about 4 hours.
Enjoy your masterpiece!
