Ingredients

CRUST

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup butter softened, 2 sticks
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

FILLING

  • 4 large apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • 4 tbsp butter melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg

TOPPING

  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 tbsp butter melted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9x13 pan with parchment and set aside.
  • Prepare the crust: In a large bowl, combine the egg, butter and sugar. Mix until creamy. Add flour and salt and stir until combined. Using your fingers (flour them, if needed), press the dough evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  • Prepare the filling: In a large bowl, combine apples, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir until combined. Pour evenly over crust.
  • Prepare the topping: In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour and butter. Stir until mixture is crumbly. Spread evenly over filling layer. Bake for an additional 30 minutes. Let cool and cut into squares.

Notes

  • Enjoy warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!
  • Drizzle a little salted caramel sauce that you can make at home!
  • Substitute brown sugar for white sugar, yum!
  • Make the recipe easier by replacing the filling with this apple pie filling made in your Instant Pot.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days.
