Betty Shrout’s Apple Pie Pizza


Pastry for 9 inch two crust pie
6 tart apples
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Crumb topping
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine

Use a red skin apple.  I use Jonathan apples.  I also sprinkle a little lemon juice if I think the apples are not tart enough

Do no pare apples. Cut into 1/2 inch slices
Beginning at edge of crust and overlapping slices cover crust with apples
Stir together the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and sprinkle over apple slices
Mix flour, sugar and butter until crumbly for topping
Top with crumb topping mixture
Bake at 450 degrees 30 to 40 minutes until edge is rown and apples tender
Watch closely because crust tends to burn
Cover with foil if it looks like its browning to quickly
