About this recipe: A unique apple pie recipe with a crunchy topping and old fashioned filling. You may vary the amounts of oats and pecans in the topping to your liking.
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.
This was simple to make and tasty too. Took almost as long to peel, core and chop all the apples as it did to cook it but it was definitely worth it. Made a few changes, added a bit of flour into the oats for the crumble as the crumble bit was a smidge on the damp side. The kids enjoyed assembling it and especially eating it. Would make again. - 02 Jan 2012
