    Breakfast Apple Pie

    Ingredients

    • 7 Golden Delicious apples
    • 1 stick (4 ounces) butter
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1 1/2 cups flour
    • 1/2 cup raisins
    • 1-9’’ deep pie dish

    Preparation
     

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
       
    2. Peel and slice the apples into 1/4’’ slices. Cover the bottom of the pie plate with the apple slices. Sprinkle with the raisins.
       
    3. In a mixing bowl on medium-low speed, cream together the butter and sugar until combined well. Add the egg and then the flour and mix well. Remove from the bowl onto a surface that is sprinkled with flour. Work flour into the dough as you flatten the crust. Lightly pat the crust into a flat piece that is about 1Ž4-1/2 inch thick. Cut the crust into pieces about 2 inches by 2 inches. Lay over the apples; to create a “patch work” effect.
       
    4. Brush crust with 1 tablespoon cream.
       
    5. Sprinkle the cinnamon topping over the crust and bake for 30-35 minutes until crust is golden brown and the apples are bubbly.

    Topping:

    • 3 teaspoons sugar
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
      1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

    Mix all ingredients together.
