Mom’s Apple Cream Pie

This is my Mom’s Apple Cream Pie recipe.  It is a great way to use up any extra apples.

Step 1:  Prepare your pie crust.  For this recipe you will only need a single pie crust.  I am not the best at making pie crust, so I will confess I use store bought.  (Nobody has every noticed – so shhhhh… it’s our secret)  For this recipe you will need a deep dish pie pan.

Step 2:  Peel, core and dice into bite size pieces about 6 apples (about 3 pounds total)  I use a combination of Granny Smith and Golden Delicious – but feel free to use whatever you have on hand.  Toss the apples with the 2 tablespoons lemon juice, 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon cloves and then put apples into pie crust.

Step 3:  Mix 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup butter (cold and crumbled up) until crumbly with a pastry blender.  Crumble over the top of the pie.

Bake about 45 minutes at 350 degrees.  At this point, pour slowly about 1/2 – 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream over the pie (I have used half and half or skim milk if I didn’t have heavy whipping cream on hand).  Bake another 15 minutes.

Let the pie cool before serving.  Serve with a scoop of ice cream.  You can try our Quick and Easy Homemade Ice Cream recipe.
