I don't know how will I call this, seems it has more crumbs than the pie itself! I thought I can use four apples, just to find out two were rotten. I'm not an apple person, just to give it a try I baked this using graham cracker as base. Anyways, here's what I did:
For the Crumble:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup wheat flour (or all-purpose flour)
1/2 cup rolled oats (old fashioned)
50g cold butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
walnut or pecan (optional), chopped
In a blender, mix brown sugar, oatmeal, flour and cold butter. Break the mixture up, add vanilla walnut (pecan). Set aside.
For the Fillings:
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
2 apples or more (peeled and sliced)
2 teaspoon lemon juice
In a bowl, add all the ingredients for fillings. Mix together.
For the base:
1 1/2 cup graham cracker (finely ground)
50g butter (cubed)
Mix graham cracker crumbs and butter until well blended. Press mixture into pie molder. Transfer the fillings into the pie crust. Sprinkle the crumble mixture. Bake the apple pie for one hour in 200°C (about 400°F).
Here's the outcome! More crumbs than the apple :)
I'll do better next time, and I'll use the real pie shell.
