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.

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
