Brown Sugar Apple Pie Critique

6 medium apples sliced
1/2 cup of sugar
3 tablespoons of melted butter
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch or dash of salt
9 inch pie crust unbaked

1/4 cup of packed brown sugar
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 cup of chilled butter

My first try at the recipe was awful.....I combined the apples with the sugar, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and put it in the pie crust then sprinkled the topping all on the top. The topping is prepared by mixing the ingredients together with the butter blended in until it is like small crumbs.  I baked the pie at 375 degrees for about 40 minutes until it was brown. My recipe didn't call for it but you should always add a little foil around the edges of the crust to keep them from getting overcooked or burnt.  Remove the foil edges about 10 minutes before it is done.  This seems to work perfect.

I think I prefer to have an apple pie with a pie crust added on top with sprinkled sugar.  Since I have an abundant amount of apples from my tree this year I will be experimenting with different apples recipes.  Hopefully I will find one that I really like.

I plan on trying Bisquick apple cobbler this week and will post my results.  Hopefully it will turn out better than this one and not so unbearably sweet.

If you try this recipe let me know how it worked for you!
