I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Apple Caramel Crumb Pie

I'm using this cookie-like crust again because it's so easy to work with. And because I don't like making pastry. And....because it's really good!

1/2 cup butter or marg
3 tbsps sugar
1 cup flour

1/2 tbsp ground flax (optional)

5 apples, sliced
5 tbsps brown sugar
4 tbsps flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
generous drizzle of caramel ice cream topping
1 tbsp butter

Crumb Top:
1/4 cup marg
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup flour
pinch cinnamon
2 tbsps shredded coconut

Blend the crust ingredients together and press into a greased 8" pie pan. (So easy!)
Bake at 375 F for 10 minutes.

Meanwhile prepare the filling. Slice the apples and toss with brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Drizzle the caramel on top of the apples and drop bits of cold butter all over.
Could've used even more caramel.  Oh well, next time.

Combine the crumb topping ingredients and sprinkle on top of the apples.  Press lightly.

Bake at 400 F for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 350 F and continue baking 30 minutes more.
