Ingredients:

Pie Crust

1 package Authentic Foods Pie Crust Mix

1 large egg yolk

2 tablespoons cream or non-dairy substitute

4 oz sweet butter or solid shortening cut into small cubes

 

Apple Crumb Filling

8 granny smith (green) apples, pared, cored and sliced

2/3 cup sugar

2 tablespoons Authentic Foods Multi-Blend Flour

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup Authentic Foods Multi-Blend Flour

1/4 cup sugar

1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick)

Directions:

Pie Crust

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

 

In a small bowl, mix the egg yolk and cream; then set aside.  Using an electric mixer, cream the butter or shortening for about 1 minute.  Then mix in the pie crust mix until evenly distributed. Add the egg mixture and beat at low speed until the dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.  Add an extra tablespoon of cream if necessary.  Remove the dough from the bowl and form it into a ball. 

 

Place the dough on a silpat baking sheet (if you don’t have a silpat baking sheet, place the dough on wax paper taped onto a hard, flat surface).  Then flatten the dough using your hands.  With a rolling pin, roll from the center of the dough to the edge of the dough with light, even strokes, forming a circle about 14 inches in diameter and about 1/4 inch thick. 

 

Place a 9 to 11 inch pie or tart pan in the center of the dough and flip it with the pie crust dough over (if you have a removable bottom on your pie or tart pan, place the removable bottom on the pie dough, flip it with the tart crust over and place in the full tart pan).  Then fit the dough to the pie or tart pan and trim the edges.  Bake the pie crust in the oven for 6 minutes.  Then take it out to cool while you make the filling.

 

Apple Crumb Filling

Combine the 2/3 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons of Authentic Foods Multi-Blend Flour and ¾ teaspoon of cinnamon together in a small bowl.  Then combine this mixture with all the apples until the apples are evenly coated.  Set the apples aside.

 

Using an electric mixer beat the ½ cup of Authentic Foods Multi-Blend Flour, ¼ cup sugar and ¼ cup butter together until the mixture has a crumb consistency.

 

Pour or neatly place the apples on top of the pie crust.  Then sprinkle the crumb mixture over the apples.  Bake in the oven for 55 to 65 minutes until the crumbs on top are just slightly golden brown.
