I took the kids apple picking last Friday and came home with a bag full of Macintosh apples. I usally make apple pie, but this time I tried a new, or rather old, family recipe. My Nana’s No Crust Apple Pie sounded perfect for my girl’s night out dinner. Easier than a pie with two crusts rolled out, yet hopefully just as delicious.
|Nana’s original recipe for No Crust Apple Pie|
My guess is my friends would agree that it was pretty darn delicious. My Nana, Priscilla Abbott, always had a dessert on hand in the house. She was a cake baker, but she sure could turn out an amazing pie too. She had five children so she knew a thing or two about creating a great meal in a timely manner. This recipe is easy enough for a casual gathering, but respectable enough to follow a holiday dinner.
- Peel and core 5-6 large apples
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon plus 1 cup sugar separated
- 1 1/2 sticks of butter melted
- 1 cup flour
- 1 egg
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
- Fill pie plate with cut up apples. Sprinkle with cinnamon and 1 tablespoon sugar
- Mix butter, flour, sugar and egg together.
- Add chopped walnuts and pour over apples
- Bake 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees

This looks awesome! I am pinning it, and I think I will try making it for a party that we are having for my daughter in October – thanks!
This looks delicious and sounds very easy…I can't remember the last time I rolled out my own pie crust. I don't plan on it anytime soon either! lol! This looks so good. I am pinning this too. Thanks for the recipe!
Looks delish! A crostata?
Mmm, this sounds so good! Definitely looks easier than a double-crust pie. Yum! I found you through Your Green Resource, by the way. 🙂 http://mindofthemother.blogspot.com/
I missed the part about how to add the butter, flour, sugar & egg. Is it rolled out like a crust or what do you do with it? Sorry if I’m a bit slow, but I can’t figure out how this is done correctly and when I make this, I want to do it correctly. It looks fabulous and I can’t wait to give it a go. Thanks
Just mix in the ingredients for the topping together, pour over the apples and bake. Easy peasy.
