Butter Tart Apple Pie

Butter Tart Apple Pie

From Donalda Brown

I like to take a family favorite dessert.

Butter-Tart Apple Pie

takes about 15 min. to get it ready and an hour to bake. Recipe says cut it in 8 smaller pieces. Recipe doesn't call for cinnamon, but I put a tsp. in the crumb topping, and sprinkle some over the apples just before putting on the topping. But we like cinnamon!


2/3 cup brown sugar

2/3 cup flour

1/3 cup butter at room temp. (I use margarine)

Mix all together until crumbly. Set aside.

Pie filling:

3 eggs

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup white sugar

2 tbsp flour

1/2 cup corn syrup*

*Note:I like the clear, white kind. It's Crown brand and says Lily White Corn syrup. I don't think it's as sweet as the golden syrup. However, the recipe doesn't specify any particular kind.

Whisk eggs with vanilla until foamy. Mix white sugar with the 2 tbsp. of flour and gradually beat into the egg mixture. Stir in corn syrup and set aside.

5 apples peeled and sliced thin - about 5 cups.

(I am using apples that are HUGE, one apple does one pie.)

1/2 cup raisins

1 deep dish pie crust

Layer apples and raisins in crust so that apples are level, then press down lightly with your hand. Pour filling over apples. Sprinkle topping over all. Oven 350. Bake pie on bottom rack of preheated oven for 60 to 70 min. In my convection oven, I bake it for 45 min. at 350, then turn the oven to 325 for another 15 min. and it's done! Cool before slicing. Store in fridge.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
