Pi Day

This week I was in charge of the teacher's luncheon something our school parent group does during every conference week.  We figure that since they are at the school all day and well into the evening we can at least make sure they have things to eat.  Some people brought in pasta salads, veggie/fruit trays, macaroni and cheese, cookies and other assorted nibbles.  In honor of National Pi Day I made an apple pie for the teachers to enjoy.  I adapted the recipe from Taste and See.

Apple PIe

Single Pie Crust (I love the one from Pioneer Woman's cookbook)
4 large granny smith apples (about 2 pounds)
1/2 C. honey
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. cardamom
dash of salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cornstarch

topping:  1C. flour
1/2C. brown sugar
3 TBSP. butter
1/4C. rolled oats

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.  Peel and dice your apples, place them into a large sauce pan with the honey and spices.  Simmer so the apples are slightly soft add the cornstarch to help thicken up the sauce.  Roll out your pie crust and add the apples.  In a bowl cut the butter into the flour and brown sugar until it is well incorporated mix in the oats.  Top the apples with the crumble.  Bake for 40 minutes  Enjoy!!!

  1. Can this pie be frozen or would it make more sense to just freeze the pie filling?? I bought 3 bushels of apples at the orchard and this sounds amazing.
