Apple Crumb Pie

Everyone has their favorite apple pie apple, but I will only use Rome apples. They have just the right ratio of tartness to sweetness. And the crust on this pie is SOOOO easy. Just mix it up, dump it in the pan, and spread it out with your hands.

Really Easy Pie Crust
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
6 Tbsp. vegetable oil
3 Tbsp. ice water

Mix all the ingredients and press into a 9-inch deep dish pie pan. At first, it may not seem like it's enough dough, but just keep pushing on it and eventually you'll get it up the sides.

4-6 large Rome apples (peeled and cut into 8ths)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/8 tsp. cloves
1/8 tsp. ginger

Add to pie crust.

Crumb Topping
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup margarine

Cut ingredients together with two knives or a pastry cutter. Spread over the top of the apples and push down, covering completely.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until you see the apples underneath starting to bubble and the top turning a golden brown.
