All American Apple Pie

Quick and easy, with a great non-crust topping.

We admit we had doubts about the crust but it turned out great. It was nice to be able to make a pie without getting flour all over.

(For those of you having trouble with the topping, keep in mind that the butter/margarine needs to be cold -out of the fridge, not at room temperature – in order to make crumbs.  Can’t go wrong with this one.

It can be added in salads, or cooked, and is especially suitable for creating sauces. And if a Gala apple reminds you somewhat of a Gold Delicious – it should – they are related!
