This juicy apple pie has a crumble topping consisting of pecans, cinnamon and sugar. The pecan topping makes this pie different from most traditional apple pies.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 2 1/2 cups peeled, cored and sliced apples
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon white sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup margarine, melted
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 pinch salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan with margarine.
Fill 2/3 of the pan with sliced apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon and 1 teaspoon sugar.
In a medium bowl, mix 1 cup sugar with the melted margarine. Stir in pecans, flour, egg and salt. Mix well. Spread mixture over the apples.
Bake in preheated oven for 65 minutes, or until golden brown.
