Apple Crumble Pie

My mum's birthday happens to fall on the same week as Mother's Day. I am cracking my head what to bake for her for the past few days. She does not like cream cakes, so layered cakes are out. Knowing that she loves apple pie & so coincidentally that I had some apples in my fridge, I baked an apple crumble pie for her *^_^*

Apple Crumble Pie
(Recipe adapted & modified from Small Small Baker)

Ingredients Crust:
50g butter
100g plain flour
1 egg yolk
25g sugar

Apple filling:
2 large apples, peeled, cored & cut into cubes
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon powder
some water
1/2 tbsp corn flour

Crumble:
60g butter
100g plain flour
2 Tbsp sugar

Method
1. Crust: Sift the plain flour in a mixing bowl. Add in sugar. Rub in the butter until small crumbs are formed. Add the egg yolk & knead to form a dough. Roll & press dough onto the tart pan. Bake in preheated oven at 180C for about 10mins.

2. Filling: Cook the apples with the rest of the ingredients with some water for about 10mins. Add cornflour to thicken.

3. Crumble: Gently rub the butter & flour to form into crumbs & add sugar & mix well.

4. After crust is baked, pour in the apple filling & sprinkle top with the crumble. Bake at 200C for about 25mins.
My mum specially request to have chicken rice from Lee Fun Nam Kee (李范南记鸡饭餐室) in Toa payoh on this special day as dinner. This apple crumble pie makes a good after dinner dessert then ;)

~Happy Birthday & Mother's day~
