Dreamy Apple Pie

This is from the Pioneer Woman, and it’s completely awesome. This is my go-to apple pie. I’ve found that people much prefer this pie to a tradition double-crusted apple pie.

Dreamy Apple Pie

1 unbaked pastry crust
3-5 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tbsp. flour
1 cup heavy cream
2 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. cinnamon

7 tbsp. butter
3/4 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped pecans (more to taste)
Dash of salt

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Filling: Add apple slices to a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon flour and cinnamon. Add cream and vanilla. Pour over apples. Pour apples into pie shell.

Topping: Mix butter, flour, sugar, pecans, and salt. Mix until everything comes together in clumps. Pour topping over apples.

Attach foil to the edges and lay a piece of flat foil loosely over the top of the pie. Place pie pan on top of a rimmed cookie sheet and bake for one hour. At the end, remove foil and allow to finish baking and browning. Can bake for up to 15 or 20 minutes more if necessary.

Remove from oven when pie is bubbly and golden brown. Serve warm with whipped cream, cinnamon whipped cream, or ice cream.
