My hubby is a simple man with very simple needs.  Our eldest and I got up early to make him his favorite apple pie.  Yes, he can surely eat apple pie for breakfast 🙂  The kids made homemade cards and each of them gave their dad coupons for him to redeem anytime.  Our oldest daughter gave a Free tennis match, middle son gave a Free hour of yardwork and youngest daughter gave Free head rub.  I love my guy!  So lucky to have him in my life ❤

French Apple Pie (my hubands fave recipe with brown sugar crumb topping)

1 9 inch pie crust

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

dash of salt

6 medium apples (granny smith)

1 C all purpose flour

1/2 C brown sugar

1/2 C butter (room temp)

Mix apples with sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. 

Place above in the pie shell.

Mix flour, brown sugar and butter until crumbly.  Sprinkle over the apples.

Bake at 425 degrees for 50 mins.  Cover the pie slightly during the last 10 mins with foil.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream on top.


Yum! Mile high apples in this pie 🙂

Brown sugar mixture on top 🙂

into the oven you go…

Can you smell that?  The house smelled like cinnamon and brown sugar.  Heavenly!  Hope y’all Fathers out there had a great day yesterday.
