Were you the fortunate recipient of an Apple Pie in a Jar?  Are you ready to whip up a homemade pie in less than 10 minutes?

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Prepare a pie crust, deep-dish preferred. Can be frozen, store bought, flour or graham cracker.

Empty contents of Apple Pie in a Jar into the prepared pie crust.  Level out as evenly as possible.

If you would like to bake your pie with no top crust, or perhaps your bottom crust included a lattice top, Simply place in oven for 25 minutes, until center is warm and crust is golden brown.

Simple Cinnamon Crumble Pie Topping

1/2 stick Butter (melted & cooled)
1 cup Brown Sugar (lightly packed)
2/3 cup Whole-Wheat Flour
1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon

In a food processor or a bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar.  Whisk together Cinnamon and Flour.  Stir together with butter mixture until medium size crumbs are formed.

Add crumble topping to pie as evenly as possible.  Loosely cover with foil and back for 15 minuets.  After 15 minutes, remove top foil and cook for additional 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

*ProTip*  Add a 1/4 cup of chopped nuts (almonds or pecans).  Or try a granola/nutty cereal, for a special texture or flavor. Warning: Although delicious, too many oats can make the crust come out a bit soft/soggy.
