An old family favorite apple pie with a crumb topping.
"I made 2 and they were slamming/delicious i added caramel sundae topping before putting in the oven and i didn't have any more nutmeg so i used a little pumpkin pie spice and i had a bunch of leftover apples taken up space in my refrigerator and it was well worth it and i had leftover pie crust in the frig already in the shell so everything worked out perfect and i don't eat apple pie but i do now Thanks"- bigmona311

Top-ranked recipe named "Brown Bag Apple Pie"
Mix 1/2 cup sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and 2 tablespoons lemon juice in a large bowl. (Omit lemon juice if using green apples. They are tart enough already.) Add apple slices and toss until coated. Place in pie shell. For topping cut 1/2 sup sugar and 1/2 cup flour into 1/2 butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over apples. Place pie in large brown paper bag. Fold ends over twice and fasten. (I use staples or paper clips.) Place on cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for one hour.

martarobbinsgailushas 1 year agoFollowed directions to the tee but seemed way too buttery for my taste. I think I'll stick with a lattice pie crust top from now on. The filling also seemed to be missing something, a little on the bland side.
ChristinaR83 1 year agoI have made this 3 times for holiday gatherings and was devoured! Everyone said it was the best apple pie they ever had. I used Braeburn apples and followed recipe and bake time exactly. Thanks for a great recipe!

Lostokie 1 year agoMy oven is a little out of calibration but even so this not nearly enough cooking time. I was a skeptic of the brown bag method but it worked fine. Not sure why I used it and wonder if it was the sack that prevented browning to occur. Great flavor!

MeatAndTaters 2 years agoWasn't sure about the paper bag in the oven but it worked great. Easiest apple pie recipe and came out great. I had a bunch of granny smith apples so I made two for Thanksgiving. I made one by the recipe and one with brandy. Both were great. Be sure to spoon the apples into the pie crust or it could end up soggy in the bottom.
