She is like the merchant's ship: she bringeth her food from afar. Proverbs 31:14

What is more American than apple pie? To be honest I don't make them very much otherwise I would not be able to fit into my clothes:) I picked enough apples off the tree today to bake two pies. .We planted the tree years ago from Michigan Bulb but don't know what kind of apples they are...You might notice a slight blur where the mixing spoon is moving in my hand as I am sprinkling the crumble crust mixture over the top of the apples. Here is the recipe...Enjoy!!!

From Reader's Digest
"Like Grandma Used to Make"
( Recipe for 1 pie.)
"Cinnamon Apple-Crumb Pie"

1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon ground cardamom
6 cups thinly sliced, peeled, tart cooking apples
1 store-bought pie crust
2/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
½ cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter or margarine

1. Preheat the oven to 375ºF. In a large bowl,
stir together the ½ cup brown sugar, the 1 tablespoon
flour, ¾ teaspoon of the cinnamon, and the
cardamom. Add the apples; toss until apples are coated.

2. Line a 9-inch pie plate with the pie crust. Trim crust to ½ inch beyond edge of pie plate. Fold under extra crust and crimp edge. Spoon the apple mixture into crust. In a medium - size bowl,
stir together the 2/3 cup brown sugar, ½ cup flour, and the remaining ½ teaspoon cinnamon. Cut in the butter. Sprinkle over the apple mixture.

3 Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until apples
are tender and crumb topping is golden.
Cool on a wire rack for 2 hours before serving.
Makes 8 servings.

*I baked the pies for 1 hour to get the apples
done enough. After I took the pies out of
the oven, I sprinkled golden ground flax
seed over the top of the crumble crust...which was not in the recipe. The flaxseed gives it extra flavor I think, but that is entirely optional.

    This is a great photo, I love the tone you used on it. I know that is work picking the apples and making pies out of them! BTY - what variety of apples are on that tree? I'd love to have the recipe for your pies : )

    I'll help you to get rid of the apple pie and stay on track with whatever diet you're on. Apple pie is health food though.. Great self portrait!

    The American Flag is the perfect background for your SP today. They say nothing is as American as apple pie. A wonderful SP and entry. I would gladly take one of those pies off your hands. LOL.

    I was so interested in that pie you are making for me that I almost didn't see the American flag! Brilliant shot. Never would have thought about flax seed on apple pie.

    What a background: Old Glory! I agree with what everyone has said. Now, perhaps I will replace one of the ovens in our house. None of them is working (except the toaster oven)!

    Thanks to everyone for your kind words..Ice cream? Sounds good, Debrah but I prefer apple pie just plain,

    which is sweet enough by itself. Nice suggestion though.
