*And we never use a pie crust. I simply slice up as many crab apples as it takes to fill the pie plate and then sprinkle a double batch of oatmeal crumble of the top. Try it once and you will never go back to any other kind of apple!!! (Oatmeal crumble doesn't even require a recipe although I know they are easy to find. It's simply a combination of oatmeal, flour, cut up butter and brown sugar! Sprinkle it (heavily) over the apples and then bake until you can easily pierce an apple!
My Day So Far... Picked all of the crab apples from the tree... did you know that they make the best apple pies... just enough tartness and then add custard or a scoop of ice cream. That's all the sweetness you are going to need!!
