Dutch Apple Pie

I've been wanting to make this pie for a few days now. My friend Lisa had given me a whole box full of golden delicious apples and I need to use them all up before they go bad!

I know the recipe calls or only 3 apples, but I ended up using 5 (and not increasing any other ingredient). It made for a very tall apple pie!

The ingredients I used to make this awesome pie.

Combine the flour, brown sugar, melted butter and oats in a bowl for the topping. Reserve 1 cup for the top of the pie!

Spread the remaining topping in a 9 inch pie plate to form the 'crust'.

Stir the cornstarch, water and sugar until smooth and bring to a boil.

Stir constantly and cook until thickened. I know you can't really tell it's thick, but it is.

My super mountain of apples! I know, I shouldn't have added so many. I thought it might end up being a big melted disaster when I saw how big it was. I need to invest in a deep dish pie plate.

Sprinkle the topping evenly (as much as possible) on top of the apples, and set it in the oven to bake for 45 minutes!

Can I wait an hour for this to cool down? We'll see. I just wish I had some vanilla ice cream!

If an item says it's a staple item that means that I used so little of the full product that it wasn't worth the math to figure out each teaspoon, etc. Haha.
