Apple Pie in a Bag

Here's something most of you don't know about me.
I love to bake! I bet my husband didn't know this about me! LOL!
Well, SURPRISE! He loved this apple pie and you will too!
It's super easy to whip together! All you have to do is toss the whole thing into a bag and forget about it!
Well, don't forget to turn on the timer...

Pastry:
1- 1/2 c. flour
1- 1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/2 cup oil
2 Tbsp. cold milk

Mix ingredients & press into 9 or 10 in. pie plate

Filling:
4 c. sliced apples (I usually do less)
1/2 c. sugar
2 Tbsp. flour
1 tsp. cinnamon

Combine last 3 ingredients in a large ziploc bag.
Place apples in bag, seal, & toss.
Pour apples into pie shell.

Topping:
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. chilled margarine or butter
1/2 c. sugar

Mix together with hands until crumbly.
(This is why the butter needs to be right out of the fridge).
Sprinkle mixture over the top of the pie.

PLACE YOUR PIE IN A BROWN PAPER BAG ON A COOKIE SHEET.
Fold the ends of the bag.

I am absolutely going to try this. Apple pie is on my list of things to learn to make in 2008, for my Double BB ... your recipe seems accessible and manageable for someone like MOI with such limited baking skills. Thanks for posting this!
