easy A

I like cooking as much if not more than most people. But just like everyone else I am crunched for time during the holiday season. Between shopping, wrapping, and getting gussied up for various get-togethers, I just don't have the hours in the day in the kitchen that I would like. This doesn't mean, however, that I can't find time to make dessert. There is always time for dessert, people. This super simple apple pie is easy to make and delicious too. Also, its a great way to sneak some fruit in your carnivore. Adapted from Recipes from the Heart Cookbook, you will need the following:

1 premade pie crust
1/3 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup of granulated sugar
2 tblsp of flour
1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp of ground nutmeg
pinch of salt
4 1/2 cups of peeled and sliced apples

1/3 cup of flour
1/3 cup of sugar
2 tblsp of rolled oats
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp of ground nutmeg
3 tblsp of butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place pie crust in 9 inch pie pan. Crinkle edges. Mix together filling ingredients in large bowl. Add to pie pan. Mix together toppings in medium bowl. Sprinkle over pie. Cover edges with aluminum fol to prevent browning. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 20 minutes longer. Top should be golden. Cool on wire rack for about five minutes. Serve while warm. Wonderful a la mode too.

So make time to make this easy dessert. You will be glad you did. Happy holidays from our family to yours!
