Apple Crumb Pie {Pi Day}


Okay, so I won't win any nutritional awards for this one, but I served my family pie for breakfast today. It had apples! And it's Pi Day. You know... 3/14. In any case, it has apples and whole wheat; it's not completely devoid of nutrition.



Filling
2 lbs apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
1/2 C organic granulated sugar
1 t ground ginger
1/2 t ground nutmeg
1 t ground cinnamon
2 T butter

Stir the apples with the sugar and spices and scoop them into your baking dish. Dot the apples with butter. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Topping
1/4 C butter
1/4 C organic brown sugar
1/2 C white whole wheat flour

Use a pastry cutter to create pea-sized chunks with the topping ingredients. Top the pie with the crumb topping. Bake for an hour until the apples are soft and bubbly.
