When the holidays come around, especially Christmas time, the dessert is just as important as the main meal. You may think that turkey is the star of Thanksgiving and the ham is the star of Christmas, but the real star of the show is the dessert table! There is nothing better than a warming home made pie in the fall and winter and today we have one of the best classics to greet our hungry tummies: apple pie. Apple Pie is a staple at our Christmas table; you just can go without a delicious pie with maple cream on top, so today I have provided one of my easy, most delicious recipes. Apple pie can be made with either a pie crust top or a crumble, today I have prepared the crumble version as I prefer, but there is nothing wrong with the alternative.
Homemade Apple Pie
This is a little bit of a cheat version because I don’t make my own dough, but it’s the crumble that makes this one a winner.
800 grams of Granny Smith apple (approx. 8 apples)
2/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons of flour
2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
1 cup flour
½ cup sugar
1.4 cup packed brown sugar
1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon
½ tsp salt
6 tablespoons chilled, unsalted butter, cubed
As well as
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
250 ml cream
1 good quality frozen pie crust
Preheat oven to 200 degrees celcius.

To make the filling, simply mix all the ingredients in a bowl and add the apples, toss to coat.
For the topping, process all ingredients except for the butter. Once blended, add butter and pulse on and off until mixture resembles wet sand.
Prepare crust in a pie pan once defrosted, toss the filling again and then tip into the crust. Coat the filling with the crumble and press to ensure it covers all the apples and reaches the sides.
Bake for approx. 40 minutes, covering the top with foil if it browns too quickly. Reduce oven temperature to 180 and cook until apples are tender and the filling bubbles.
Beat you cream and maple syrup together until thick, store in the fridge until the pie is ready and cooled. Serve pie with cream.
Enjoy your homemade apple pie.
