Hi Nutmeg Nanny readers! I’m Jen from Beantown Baker. Brandy is one of my favorite bloggers, so I was thrilled to do a guest post for her while she’s away.

As my blog name implies, I live in Boston and I love to bake.

My Hubby serves as my number one taste tester and even though he claims he’s not a big dessert guy, he has learned to enjoy the variety of cakescupcakescookies, and bars that I whip up to relieve the stress of my 9-5 desk job.

Making this apple pie was tough for me.

You see, I’ve been holding on to every last second of summertime this year.

I’ve been stubborn about admitting that fall is actually here.

And I love fall – it’s definitely my favorite season. The cooler weather, football, and food are all awesome!

But my heart just hasn’t been in it this year.

I think it’s because we had an especially brutal winter last year. I always say that the summers in Boston make living through the winters worthwhile. I figure mother nature owed us an extra-long summer this year.

But then it happened. Hubby and I went apple picking.

It’s hard to turn down an invite from my one-year-old nephew to spend the afternoon picking apples and laughing.

So then we had about 20 pounds of apple in our kitchen.

Hubby requested apple pie. But you see, I don’t really like making pie.

I don’t know why, it’s just not my thing. And I wanted to make apple crisp.

Then I remembered this recipe.

It’s the perfect combination of apple pie and apple crisp. It’s delicious warm for an afternoon snack. Or breakfast. Or really any time of day.

I made this and it smells divine! Very easy to make and even if you screw it up, you can't screw it up.

Thanks for the response. I made these tonight and this was my first ever attempt at a pie. Even made my own crust...I was impressed with Definitely not as pretty as the picture and my crumb topping needs some work, it seemed to be too wet, but overall yummy. The recipe is probably perfect but zi think my pie making skills need work.

I would love to do this in muffin tins for individual servings but I'm not sure how that would effect the cook time or temp. Any suggestions?

The temperature I would keep the same but cut down a little on the cooking time. Check it at the halfway point to see how it looks.
