Ingredients:

  • 6 cups thinly sliced apples
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup flour

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Peel and thinly slice enough apples to fill a 9-inch pie dish about 2/3 full. Tip: Use a mandoline slicer for uniform slices.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together 1 tablespoon of flour, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Sprinkle this mixture over the apples, then toss to coat.
  4. In another bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of melted butter, and 1 egg until everything is well combined.
  5. Add 1/2 cup of flour to the sugar mixture and stir until smooth.
  6. Pour the sugar mixture over the apples and stir until all the apples are coated evenly.
  7. Transfer the apple mixture to a greased 9-inch pie dish.
  8. Bake the pie for 45 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the filling is bubbly.
  9. Let it cool for at least 15 minutes before serving.

What I love about this recipe is that you still get all the flavors of a classic apple pie without the fuss of making a perfect crust. The combination of cinnamon and nutmeg gives the filling a warming autumn flavor, while the buttery egg and flour topping creates a crispy crust-like texture. It’s the best of both worlds!
