This is an adaptation of an Amish/Mennonite Recipe from one of my family's vintage recipe books.
Apple Pie Without a Crust
1/2C White Sugar
1/4 C Brown Sugar
1/2 C Flour
1 Egg, unbeaten
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 C Chopped Apples ( core and peel the Apple) I used a Jonagold, it only took 1/2 of a large Apple)
The next time I made it I used a small apple and it was a cup!
1 C Chopped Pecans ( I used 1/2 C of Regular Pecans and 1/2 C of Cinnamon Frosted Pecans)
Combine, in a bowl:
Sugars ( White and Brown)
Combine, in a bowl
Add to Dry Ingredients
Stir in :
I use a blending fork, a wooden spoon would be just fine, to mix all of the ingredients together.
The dough will be very thick.
Press the dough, using your fingers, in a Pie Pan that's been prepared with my Pan Release Recipe ( search under Tips, Hints and More)
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Serve with Whipped Cream , or Vanilla Ice Cream.
I made this and we took it to some friends for dinner last night. It is definitely a "Best of the Best" recipe. I will keep making this one!
Since I first posted this recipe, I've made it many times. It's our new favorite dessert. I've made it with apple and walnuts or you could use slivered almonds. I'll also make it with pear and walnuts. It's simple to make, only 30 minutes and most people have the ingredients in their pantry except for an apple or a pear.
Peace in the Kitchen! ( The Kitchen smells amazing)
In the oven right now for Breakfast.
