I like to make Apple Pizza Pie instead of regular apple pie because it's flat and you get more crumble topping in each bite - yum! Plus it makes a great dessert for a group since you can cut it into whatever size squares you need.
When the kids were little we went to the apple orchard every fall, but now I just wait until our grocery store has local apples. I like to use Granny Smith or Braburn apples, but any tart baking apple is good.
Make crust for a two crust pie and roll it out a little bigger than a 12" pizza pan.
My mom taught me how to make the fluted edge on the crust - but mine never gets quite as even as hers. I peel more apples than I think will fit because they shrink down when they are baked. Hmmm, maybe some of the shrinkage is because they taste really good after they are tossed with the cinnamon and sugar.
The crumble topping covers the apples.
Kirk was downstairs shipping orders today when the pie went into the oven, and before it was even done he came upstairs and asked "Do I smell Apple Pie?" The poor guy had to wait for it to finish baking, and then he had to wait even longer for me to take this picture before he could dig in!
