Part pie, part cobbler, this dish is a must for fall parties and get-togethers.

Ingredients

all-purpose flour

1 cup(s)

sugar

2 tsp

reduced-calorie margarine

3 Tbsp, chilled and cut up

mineral water

2 Tbsp, or more if necessary

fresh apple(s)

4 medium, McIntosh, peeled and thinly sliced

sugar

¼ cup(s)

cornstarch

1 Tbsp

ground cinnamon

½ tsp

uncooked old fashioned oats

cup(s)

all-purpose flour

5 Tbsp

sugar

2 Tbsp

reduced-calorie margarine

2 Tbsp, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. To make the crust, combine 1 cup of flour and 2 teaspoons of sugar in a large bowl or food processor. Add 3 tablespoons of chilled margarine and process (or mix together with your fingers if you do not have a food processor) until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cold water, one tablespoon at a time, and process or mix until a manageable dough forms. Press dough into the bottom and up the sides of a 9-inch pie plate. Pinch the edges to form a decorative rim; set aside.
  3. To make the filling, combine apples, 1/4 cup of sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon in a large bowl; toss to coat apples. Arrange mixture in prepared piecrust.
  4. To make the topping, combine oats, 5 tablespoons of flour, 2 tablespoons of sugar and melted margarine in a small bowl; sprinkle over apples.
  5. Bake until apples are tender and crumb topping is golden brown, about 45 to 50 minutes. Allow to cool for 30 minutes before slicing into 8 pieces.
