Tasty Tuesday: Nannie's Apple Pie

Welcome to Tasty Tuesday everyone!! Glad you could join me for yet another Nannie's recipe!! This week it's a cool little variation of your traditional apple pie.

Now with Summer under way, there's nothing that pleases me more then peeling and coring apples, making homemade crust, baking it up then sitting it on the window seal to cool. But that's time consuming and sometimes you have to have a quick dessert for those many a family cookouts!

Nannie's Apple Pie is the perfect solution to though feux bakers out there (like myself) and for those pressed for time. All this without sacrificing the yummy goodness of a "real" apple pie.

I don't particularly remember this dessert from my childhood (because there were so many), but I have fixed this as an adult and it was a huge hit.

I can only imagine Nannie wanting to bake an apple pie, but needing to get things done around the house then making sure we were all fed breakfast, lunch and dinner. It would dawn on her that she could fix this simplified version and still have a happy family! Of course, if I know Nannie, she would have had it all planned out days in advance and Papa would have gone to 14 stores to get all the ingredients if he had to. Of course, any regular store would have done, but he would have hit ALL the sales!

By the way~ this, as do all apple pies, goes great with a scoop (or two) of ice cream!

When you're done, head over to Jen's at Balancing Beauty and Bedlam to see what else you could whip up to accompany your easy dessert!

Nannie's Apple Pie

1- 30 oz can of apple pie filling

1 cup all-purpose flour

2/3 cup sugar

1 tbsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 stick butter (softened)

1 egg (beaten)

chopped nuts (optional)

Spread the apple pie filling smoothly across an oiled pan (10" deep dish or 9x9). In a seperate bowl stir together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Blend in the egg and butter to form a thick batter. Then with a spoon, drop batter onto apple filling until covered. Sprinkle with nuts. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 mins. or until filling is bubbly and batter is nicely browned.
