Swedish Apple Pie

I love picking apples....my 15 year old daughter, Claire, and I went apple picking a couple of weeks ago on a balmy, late summer Sunday in September and came home with MANY Cortland apples...which are perfect for baking.  Apple picking is something we did often when the girls were little and we hadn't been in a long time....so...it was on Claire's bucket list for autumn.  We went a couple of weeks early as our autumn is very busy.

So.....on Sunday evening, while laundry was whirring away and we were going through mail, etc. from being away all weekend, I decided to make Swedish Apple Pie which is a fave because it is crust-less!!  I don't make good pie crust...it is never flaky!!  I do cheat for my homemade chicken pot pie and buy a name brand pie crust.....but I really don't bake crusts.  I figure that's what good bakeries are for!

This recipe has been requested by several friends.......enjoy!!

SWEDISH APPLE PIE

peeled and sliced apples, about 6-8 large apples
1 TBL cinnamon
1/2 TBl sugar
3/4 c. (1 1/2 sticks) of margarine, melted
1 c. sugar
1 c. flour
1 egg
pinch of salt
1/2 c. walnuts, chopped (optional)
  • Fill a lightly greased pie plate with the apples, about 2/3 full.
  • Sprinkle with the cinnamon and the 1/2 tablespoon of sugar.
  • In a small bowl, add all the other ingredients and mix well.
  • Pour over the apples. You will need to use a spatula to help the mixture cover all the apples.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
  • serve warm.
NOTE:  you can add nutmeg to the ingredients like I do....it gives it an extra autumn flavored kick.

Serve with vanilla ice cream (optional) or slices of thick cheddar cheese.

Keep leftovers in fridge and warm in microwave for about 20 seconds per slice.

Now this sounds like something even I could handle.

I probably could manage as well, ha ha. I make GOOD apple pie but use the pillsbury rollout crust. Never made an actual crust before :)
