  3. To prevent overbrowning, cover edge of pie with foil. Place the pie on the oven’s center rack at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Place a large baking sheet covered with foil on a rack under the pie. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove foil. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes more or until apples are tender, filling is bubbly and topping is golden. (If necessary, loosely cover top of pie with foil the last 30 to 40 minutes.) Cool on a wire rack. Serve pie slightly warm with ice cream. Makes 8 servings.

  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons cold butter, cut into 1/4-inch thick slices

  2. Remove the lid; add flour, oats, salt and cinnamon. Cover and process until combined.
  3. Remove the lid; scatter butter over the flour mixture. Cover and process until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
