Easy Apple Pie

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I’m sure that many people will be making or buying a pumpkin pie of some sort to be served after the big meal. I was never really a pumpkin pie fan though I do enjoy this pumpkin custard now and then. I’m more of an apple pie type of gal. My grandmother use to make the most delicious homemade pies with flakey crusts (made with lard of course!) and tender apples baked with a rather heavy handed sprinkle of cinnamon and sugar on top.

While I may dream about her pies I also see what a nightmare it would be if I ate a slice. Talk about a blood sugar rush and then crash. Instead of missing out on pie I started making this version a few years ago. Skip the pie crust and replace it with a streusel like topping. It’s super quick to make and tastes great! If you double the recipe you can make it in a 13 X 9 inch pan.
