Instructions Checklist
  • Prepare and roll out Single Crust Pie Shell pastry. Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry. Trim overhang to an even 1 inch all the way around. Tuck the crust under and flute the edges. Do not prick pastry. Line pastry with a double thickness of foil; add pie weights, if you like. Bake in a 400 degrees F oven for 15 minutes to partially bake pastry shell. Remove foil and pie weights. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees F.

For crumb topping:
  • In a medium bowl, stir together flour and the 2/3 cup sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut in cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

  • In a large bowl, stir together 1 cup sugar and cinnamon. Add apple slices. Gently toss until coated. Transfer apple mixture to the pastry-lined pie plate. Press fruit gently with your hands to provide a relatively flat, mounded surface on which to add the crumb topping. Sprinkle crumb topping over apple mixture. To prevent overbrowning, loosely cover pie with foil.

  • Place pie plate on middle shelf in oven; place foil-lined baking sheet on lower rack beneath pie. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes more or until fruit is tender, filling is bubbly and crumb topping is golden brown. Cool on a wire rack at least 2 hours before serving.

  • To serve, drizzle with warm dulce de leche and sprinkle with nuts. Serve with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, if you like. Makes 8 servings.
