My grandmother used to make this pie when we had Christmas at her house. She used a paper bag to cover the pie, but in the updated version we use parchment paper. It is a very old recipe. Enjoy!

Great apple pie if you don't especially care for a lot of pastry crust; this one has a tasty crumble topping instead. After fumbling with the parchment paper method unsuccessfully (I didn't think of stapling it until after the fact, but just folding it up didn't work), I placed the pie in a brown paper grocery sack, folded the open end down under the sack and it worked great. Just be careful that the fold doesn't cause your pie to be tilted. I researched the paper bag method a bit online and found others who even sell pies made this way. They mentioned that the bag keeps the apples moist and gives them a chance to fully cook without overcooking the crust. Next time I may take it out of the bag to brown a bit more at the end of the baking time, but it still had nice color after 1 hour as called for. I used 6 medium Granny Smith Apples, and added a teaspoon of cinnamon since I think something is missing without cinnamon in an apple pie! I will make this again since the topping is a nice touch.

I never ever made a pie before trying this recipe. Now I'm the designated pie girl always having to bake my butt off because they LOVE this pie. I can't thank you enough for posting this. It's the easiest recipe and friend and family devour it every time.
