Delicious cinnamon-apple filling in a buttery crumb crust makes this apple pie the perfect dessert for any occasion!
2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
3/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
2/3 cup sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1-1/4 cups cold water
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 cups chopped peeled tart apples
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, oats and melted butter or margarine until crumbly. Set aside 1 cup; press remaining crumb mixture into bottom and up the sides of an ungreased 9-inch pie plate; set aside.
2. In a large saucepan, combine the sugar, cornstarch, water, cinnamon and nutmeg until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in the apples and vanilla extract.
3. Pour apple mixture into the prepared crust; top with the reserved 1 cup crumb mixture. Bake at 350 degrees F for 40 to 45 minutes or until crust is golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Makes 8 servings.
