Oatmeal Crusty Top Apple Pie


Home | Recipes | O
Pies/pastry

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 c Rolled oats
  • 1 c All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/4 c Pure lard
  • 3 tb Cold water
FILLING
  • 4 c Peeled; sliced apples
  • 3/4 c Brown sugar
  • 1/4 ts Cinnamon
TOPPING
  • 1/4 c Rolled oats
  • 1/4 c All-purpose flour
  • 2 tb Brown sugar
  • 1/4 ts Cinnamon
  • 1/4 c Margarine

Directions:

For pastry, stir oats, flour and salt, then cut in lard until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Blend in water and form into ball of dough with fingertips.
 
Let stand 5 minutes, then roll to fit an 8 or 9" pie plate. It is a bit tender to lift, so pass a spatula under as you fold it in two. If it breaks, simply join it together.
 
To fill, stir apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Pack into pie shell.
 
To top, mix oats, flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut in margarine until mixture is crumb-like, then cover apples.
 
Bake for 35 minutes at 375 degrees F, or until golden brown on top.
 
NOTES : This unusual pie is full of crunch and nut-like flavor.
