Pre-make a pie crust using Susie Quick’s recipe. Set the pie crust aside.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Peel apples and slice into thin pieces. Mix dry ingredients for pie filling. Pour mixed dry ingredients over apples and stir, making sure to coat the apples evenly.

Pour filling into crust and set aside. Using a pastry cutter, cut the ingredients for the pie topping together and sprinkle topping evenly over apples. Bake for about 35 until pie topping is lightly browned and filling is bubbly.
