According to every pie survey ever taken, apple pie is America's favorite pie. Ok, so I didn't actually go through every pie survey ever taken, but I did look at quite a few - and the trend was pretty clear - apple is a definite crowd pleaser. While there has been a shift in America's pie consumption over the last few years, (people seem to be more willing to explore new flavors) apple pie still manages to come out on top. A good apple pie recipe is a great thing to have on hand. This recipe has the buttery crust and sweet cinnamon filling of a classic apple pie, but has the added bonus of a crumb topping.
