Bake apple pies for the Ossining Food Pantry.  

Troop 2295 (Liz, Karen and Terri) will be coordinating the effort.  Contact Liz

with any questions or to sign up.  All pies MUST BE BAKED AND FROZEN upon delivery.  Wrap in foil and then zip lock each pie to prevent spilling.  Include type of pie (apple/pumpkin, etc.), NO NUT ingredients, a card or note, and baking directions with each pie.  Pie delivery date is Thursday, Nov. 16, 2016, 6:00 - 7:00m.   Drop pies at Trinity Episcopal Church, Ellis Place.  Troop 2295 will be collecting the pies at the gate - no need to drive into parking lot., just open your car door and Troop 2295 will unload the pies for you.  If you cannot make that time, contact Karen or Liz to work something out.  Karen will also accept pies at her house.  

Apple pie recipe

Crumb-Topped Apple Pie


2/3 cup all purpose flour

1/3 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg

1/3 cup butter


2 lb. tart cooking apples

1 T. lemon juice

3/4 cup granulated sugar

2 T. all purpose flour

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

dash salt

frozen pie shell or ready-made refrigerated pie dough

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Prepare topping:  in a medium sized bowl, combine 2/3 cup flour, the brown sugar, 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, and the nutmeg.  With a pastry blender or two knives, cut the butter until it resembles coarse cornmeal.*

Prepare filling:  peel and core the apples.  Cut apples into thin slices and place in a large bowl; toss apple slices with lemon juice.  In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, 1 tsp. cinnamon and the salt; add to apple slices and toss gently to combine.

Turn the apple filling into the pie shell, spreading the apple filling evenly.  Sprinkle topping evenly over the filling.**   

Place pie on center rack in oven and bake 40 minutes or until apples are tender.  Remove to cool.  When pie is cool, double wrap in foil, mark “baked” with an adhesive label and freeze.  The pantry will accept baked pies but they must be frozen.

*  In the past, I have had the girls do this with their hands, rubbing the butter in with their fingers.  It’s easier as far as motor skills are concerned, but definitely messier!
