Apple Pie

Here is the recipe for the apple pie Surfer Dude will NOT stop talking about.

Seriously, he won't stop.
Frankly, this apple pie is the only thing holding our relationship together. I can build on that.

Crunch Top Apple Pie
Dough for a double crust 9-inch pie (homemade, frozen, or refrigerated)
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Dash salt
3 1/2 cups peeled, chopped cooking apples
1 (16-ounce) jar applesauce - cinnamon flavor
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons butter,
chopped into small pieces

Crunch Topping:
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
Dash salt
1 tablespoon butter, at room temperature

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a 9-inch pie pan with half of dough. Combine sugar, flour, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Stir in apples, applesauce, and lemon juice. Spoon apple mixture into pie pan and dot with butter. Cut remaining crust into strips; arrange in a lattice design over top of pie. For crunch topping, combine flour, sugar, and salt in a bowl. Using a fork, cut in butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over top of crust. Bake for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees and continue to bake for about 45 minutes, or until crust and topping are golden brown.

Tomorrow's Lasagna. Oh baby.

Yum. When I have an oven again I will definitely attempt this. Perhaps it will land me a surfer dude. :) I could deal with that.
