Swedish Apple Pie


For those of us who are pie crust impaired, this is the perfect recipe. It has all the flavors and consistencies that make apple pie great, but no fussing with the crust. The lack of crust is what makes this a Swedish apple pie instead of Dutch or English style.  Also, traditionally the apples are only seasoned with a spoonful of sugar before being topped. I did not stick to the traditional flavoring, however, because I firmly believe cinnamon makes everything better. So, after I peeled, cored, and sliced 3 granny smith apples I sprinkled about a tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and a Tbsp of sugar on the apples in the pie dish (a 9 inch one). Just to make sure no apples were left out I stirred them up to make sure some cinnamon goodness made it on each apple piece. ‘

Now for the topping. 1/2 cup white sugar, 1/2 brown sugar, 1 cup flour, 1 egg, 1 tsp cinnamon, 3/4 cup melted butter mixed together very well in a bowl. Pour the mixture evenly over the apples. Put it into a 350 preheated oven for about 40 minutes.  You can serve immediately.

Finished Pie

This is the way to go with apple pie, if you ask me. So quick, so easy, and so delicious.  Try it out. You won’t be sorry!

  1. Similar to the key lime pie, this barely lasted a day and a half.

  2. This looks super yummy. I’ll try it and get back with you!
