    There’s nothing like warm apple pie to cap off a meal with the family. Below is an easy-to-prepare version of the dessert that’s perfect for busy moms.

    You will need the following for the crust and topping:
    •    2 cups all-purpose flour
    •    1 cup brown sugar, packed
    •    ¾ cup butter, melted
    •    ½ cup quick-cook oats

    For the filling:
    •    2/3 cup granulated sugar
    •    3 tablespoons cornstarch
    •    1 ¼ cups water
    •    4 medium sized apples, cored, peeled and diced
    •    1 teaspoon vanilla extract

    Directions:

    1.    To make the crust and topping, combine the flour, brown sugar, butter, and oats in a mixing bowl. Mix well. Set aside about 1 cup of the mixture to use as topping.
    2.    Put the rest of the mixture in a 9-inch pie plate.  Press the mixture down firmly onto the pie plate.
    3.    To make the filling, combine the granulated sugar, cornstarch, and water in a pan.  Stir constantly until the mixture becomes smooth.  Bring to a boil.  Stir for a minute or so or until the mixture thickens.
    4.    Remove from the heat.  Mix in the apples and vanilla extract.
    5.    Pour on top of the crust.  Top with the 1-cup crumb mixture.
    6.    Bake in a pre-heated oven at 350°F for about 45 minutes or until the crust turns golden brown.
    7.    Serve as is or topped with vanilla ice cream.
