We're still enjoying apples... and one thing you can never have enough of is pie.
I wanted to try to make the traditional apple pie a little healthier -- less sugar, whole wheat flour, and lots of spices. One bite from Frog Prince and I knew it was a hit.
Apple Honey Pie - SnoWhite
1 C whole wheat flour
1 C old-fashioned oats
2 T brown sugar
1 T honey
1/2 C butter, melted
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
4 large apples, sliced and diced
2 T whole wheat flour
1-2 tsp. cinnamon (to taste)
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 C honey
You'll start by making the crust/topping. Don't snitch any in the process either ;)
First, melt the butter. Stir in the honey.
Then, add to the melted butter the flour, brown sugar, oats and cinnamon.
Stir and mix well until clumpy.
Pour all but roughly 3/4 C of topping into the pie plate. Press into the pie plate to form a crust. Reserve the rest for the topping.
[sorry, somehow I didn't take a picture of the crust!]
Then, mix flour, cinnamon and nutmeg together in a large bowl.
Add apples and drizzle with honey.
Stir well to coat.
Place apples inside the pie crust.
Sprinkle with remaining topping.
Bake at 350 for ~45 minutes until browned and slightly bubbly (juiciness of the pie will depend on the variety of apples)... ours never really got bubbly, but the apples were tender.
Allow the pie to cool slightly before serving. With ice cream, of course.
Then, go back for seconds... it is healthy apple pie, after all ;-)
