Sky Top and Apple Crumb Pie

Each fall (or almost fall)  for the last ten years we have headed up to the mountains to Sky Top Orchard.  It is one of our favorite things to do!  If it were not two hours away we would be up there each week!  We can't wait to bring J there! :) 

Our favorite kind of apple!! :)

When we pick apples...I have to come home and make an apple pie! In college, I had an education  professor who shared a great apple pie and his recipe with us. I have made it ever since! 

Apple Crumb Pie
6-8 apples (or enough to fill a 9 inch pie plate)
1/4 cup of sugar
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 sugar
3/4 cup of flour
1/3 cup of butter
pie crust

Pare apples; thinly slice and arrange in 9 inch pastry-lined pie plate.  Mix 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar with cinnamon; sprinkle over apples.

Sift 1/2 cup of sugar with the flour; cut in butter till crumbly.  Sprinkle over apples.  Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 45 minutes.  May need to cover edges with foil the last 15 minutes of baking.

Have a great weekend!
