This is by far the easiest pie to make. You simply press the pie crust into the pie plate, fill, top with a brown sugar, cinnamon crumb topping and bake. It doesn't get better than this!


1 1/2 c.   T.G.I.G.F! Mix

1/2 c.      Palm Oil Shortening

4-5 T.      Milk, cow's, rice, soy, almond or coconut

Apple Filling

4 c.         Apples, thinly sliced and peeled

1/2 c.      Granulated sugar

1 1/2 T.   T.G.I.G.F! Mix

1/2 t.       Cinnamon

2 t.          Lemon juice

Crumb Topping

1 c.         T.G.I.G.F! Mix

1/2 c.      Brown Sugar

1/4 t.       Cinnamon

1/2 c.       Palm Oil Shortening


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl cut the shortening into the T.G.I.G.F! mix until coarse crumbs form. Add the milk one tablespoon at a time until all ingredients come together to form dough.  Peel and slice apples, place in a large bowl, pour sugar, T.G.I.G.F! mix, cinnamon and lemon juice over sliced apples. Stir with a spoon to coat the apples. Using oiled fingers press the pie crust dough into the bottom and up the sides of a 9" pie pan. Pour coated apple slices over crust and sprinkle crumb topping over all. Place on a cookie sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes in preheated 350 degree oven until light golden brown.
