Makes it own Crust Apple Pie

Last week I found this recipe on This Week for Dinner’s website.  I thought this was a genius idea because you don’t need to make a separate crust for the pie.  I don’t know if I’ve attempted to make homemade crust.  Usually I use the store bought variety.

This pie is easy to put together.  Although it called for peeling the apples, I left a little peel on which added color when the apples peeked out of the crust.  Which was pretty cool looking.  This is not a traditional pie.  Instead the crust is more like a cobbler then apple pie like.  This pie would be good with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or even cinnamon ice cream.  Yum!

Makes It Own Crust Apple Pie

from This Week for Dinner

Stars of the recipe:

  • Sliced apples, sliced but not too thin, peeled
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of cinnamon sugar
  • 1 1/2 sticks melted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 beaten egg


  1. Fill a pie plate or any 8×8 casserole dish/pan with sliced apples. Only the center can be slightly above level with the top of dish or the topping will spill over the sides, so don’t get carried away.

  2. Sprinkle the apples with about 1 Tbsp. cinnamon sugar. (More or less depending on what you like.)

  3. Mix together the butter, sugar, flour and egg.

  4. Pour the mixture evenly over apples, sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar if desired.

  5. Bake at 350 degrees F until deep golden brown – around 40-45 minutes or so.
