Yet another delicious recipe in our blueberry themed baking week. This is an apple blueberry pie with a crumb topping and homemade whipped vanilla cream. Delicious! As you know from the previous post the blueberries came from the farm last weekend, but the apples came from our very own back yard that I just now realized was there. Not sure how I missed this huge tree full of apples earlier, but I did. I blame it on the 3 acres I have to take care off...lol Here is the delicious recipe to share with your family and loved ones, enjoy!
Apple Blueberry Pie:
2 green apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1 cup fresh blueberries, rinsed
1 tablespoon Lemon Juice
1/4 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tablespoon Flour
1 premade deep dish crust (frozen section in store)
2/3 cup Flour
2/3 cups Packed Brown Sugar
1/3 cup Butter, softened
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350
Thinly cut your apple slices. In a large bowl toss the apples and blueberries with the sugar, lemon juice, and spices. Once covered sprinkle 2 tablespoon of flour and continue tossing until mixed. Pour your pie mixture into the frozen deep dish pie crust.
In a separate bowl add the brown sugar, flour and spices. With a fork cut in the butter and make sure to get all the mixture combined. You want the topping to ball up. If you notice there is loose flour and what not on the bottom of the bowl and it's not mixing well, add a little more butter and continue. Eventually it will all incorporate. When ready, pile the crumb topping onto the pie and sides. Gently pat to keep it from falling off.
Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes. The top will be a beautiful brown and the juices should be bubbling!
Cool on wire rack. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or fresh vanilla whipped cream!
