Swedish Apple Pie Recipe
"Easy as pie" as the saying goes. But this recipe is really EASIER than pie! Sliced Granny Smith apples go in the pie dish first, followed by a quick and simple topping. The topping settles down around the apples during baking and becomes lightly crisp - so good! Based on The Apple Lover's Cookbook by Amy Traverso.
- 2 pounds Granny Smith apples (about 4-5 large), peeled, cored and cut in 1/4-inch slices
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup plus1 tablespoon flour
- 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
- 10 tablespoons butter (1 1/4 sticks) at room temperature, plus more for greasing pan
- 1 large egg
- (Optional topping: vanilla ice cream or whipped cream)
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Butter a 9 or 10-inch pie plate.
- In medium bowl mix cinnamon with 1 tablespoon of the flour and 2 tablespoons of the sugar; toss apple slices gently in mixture to coat. Arrange the slices flat and in an even layer in the pie plate (if using a 9-inch pie plate it will look quite full but there will still be room for the topping.)
- Using electric mixer, combine the remaining 1 cup flour and 1 cup sugar with butter and egg, mixing until combined.
- Using a spatula, spread the batter over apples as evenly as possible.
- Bake until top is golden brown and crusty, about 40-45 minutes. (Can also be baked in a 9 x 13 pan for 35-40 minutes.
- Let cool on rack about 30 minutes, then serve warm (with optional topping,)
- Yield: 8 to 12 servings, depending on portion size.
