Apple Crumb Pie & Pledge of Allegiance Printable

Parades, fireworks, picnics, backyard cookouts and apple pie ~
all part of our nations annual celebration of freedom and independence. Sharing with you an apple crumb pie recipe and a printable Pledge of Allegiance for your 4th of July festivities. 

This version of apple pie has a crumb topping instead of a top crust. Served with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream and you'll be singing, "I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy'!

It is an old family recipe, given to me from my sister when I was a new bride... almost 39 years ago.

Apple Crumb Pie

1 pie crust shell, unbaked
5-7 tart apples, peeled &amp thinly sliced
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Crumb Topping:
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup butter, softened

Preheat oven to 375

Toss apple slices with sugar and cinnamon. Fill pie crust with apples.

In medium bowl, combine 1/2 cup sugar, flour and butter until crumbly. Place crumb mixture on top of the apples. Tent with foil to prevent over browning. Bake 25 minutes; remove foil and continue baking another 15-20 minutes until golden brown and juices begin to bubble over.

Praying for our nation...
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14

Build Your Kingdom Here
 by the Rend Collective Experiment

Come, set Your rule and reign
In our hearts again
Increase in us we pray
Unveil why we’re made

Come set our hearts ablaze with hope
Like wildfire in our very souls
Holy Spirit come invade us now
We are Your Church
We need Your power
In us

We seek Your kingdom first
We hunger and we thirst
Refuse to waste our lives
For You’re our joy and prize

To see the captive hearts released
The hurt; the sick; the poor at peace
We lay down our lives for Heaven’s cause
We are Your church
We pray revive
This Earth

Build Your kingdom here
Let the darkness fear
Show Your mighty hand
Heal our streets and land
Set Your church on fire
Win this nation back
Change the atmosphere
Build Your kingdom here
We pray

Unleash Your kingdom’s power
Reaching the near and far
No force of hell can stop
Your beauty changing hearts
You made us for much more than this
Awake the kingdom seed in us
Fill us with the strength and love of Christ
We are Your church
We are the hope
On Earth

Loved this post, Lorraine. Hard to believe another 4th is here. My husband would love it if I popped one of these into the oven. I would love to try it with the crumb topping. Have a good week!

Thank you so much for the free download. I want to teach it's powerful words to my grandchildren. As for the apple pie, well, it is by far my favorite pie, especially with vanilla ice cream. I appreciate that you shared the recipe too. Well written post!
