Apple Crumble Recipe of the Week
This weeks challenge was an Apple Crumble Pie. I am not sure what happened to my pie but it looks a little like someone stepped on half of it (see picture). I was excited about this recipe because I had gone to Costco and overzealously picked up 2! package of apples (24 huge apples) hoping to make enough pies for the whole family. I found the recipe easy to make and quite simple. I used a pre-made pie crust to make life easier and added the necessary ingredients. The crumble topping is buttery and delicious with just the right touch of cinnamon and sugary sweetness. I was less than thrilled with the pre-made pie crust as I thought it was not sweet enough (shame on me for not making the one that was recommended with the pie) and the cook time seemed long for the apples. The apples seemed almost perfect at the end of the first baking before I was asked to lower the temp and cook for 40 minutes longer. Overall, the pie's flavors were wonderful but the texture was slightly off for this cook. I think I will attempt this pie again with a lower cooking temp or a lesser cooking time.
