About this recipe: Quick and easy, with a gorgeous non-pastry topping. Try a variety of apples, mix it up...
To check the doneness of the pie filling, insert a knife into the centre of the pie. If it meets with little or no resistance, the pie is done.
If the pie is not quite done but the top or edges are becoming too dark, loosely cover the top of the pie with aluminium foil to shield it from the heat.
Once the pie is done baking, let the pie cool to room temperature before slicing to allow the pie filling to set.

That an awesome and easy to make pie. Well, I took a shortcut and used a frozen pie crust. But, it was so easy. I picked this recipe becasue I was out of brown sugar and did a search to see if there was such an apple pie using only white- and here it is! I did take one reviewer's advice and added 1 TB lemon juice and 2 TB cornstarch - then as advised, put it all in a saucepan to ensure the apples cook better. After about 20 on 'low' (and stirring frequently!), I poured it into my premade crust. Then, for the topping, I didn't have a pastry cutter, so I used a fork. And, I'm a sweet tooth, so I doubled the amounts for the crumb crust. I added cinnamon and a little sugar now and then as I was mashing with my fork. I loaded the pie with these crumbles. After about 40 min, I took it out (remember, I already cooked my apples earlier), and it was golden brown and crunchy on top and my crust was not overdone or dry since I didn't have to bake as long. - 28 Oct 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is excellent! I made a few slight adjustments, however, that made the pie even better. Use just under the amounts shown for oil and salt for the crust. Add 1 TBS of lemon juice and 2 TBS cornstarch to the filling mixture and cook in a saucepan until tender, then put in the unbaked pie crust. Use 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup sugar, and a few dashes of cinnamon, along with the other ingredients, to make the topping. You can also add some rolled oats and chopped pecans to the topping mixture for added variety. Enjoy! - 19 May 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
