Best Pumpkin Apple Pie

Ok.....this might be one of the best apple pumpkin pies ever.  And if you have not ventured into putting apple and pumpkin together - try it.  It might just become a family favorite.  I made this pie years ago and it has been on the holiday table ever since.

If you are having people over for the holidays or you are invited to someone's house for the holidays, bring this. Your pie will be talked about for a long time.  Hahaha....  :)  

I know I say "it's so easy to make" a lot, but this really is easy to make.  I was thinking about what to post yesterday and decided to make this and show you.  It was in the oven in less than 20 minutes.  

There is an apple mixture you put into the pie shell first. 

Then there is a pumpkin mixture you put on top of that.


Then you finish it with a crumb topping. What is not to like?

Recipe

Apples -
2 Granny Smith apples - cut up
1/4 cup of sugar
2 tsp of flour
2 tsp of lemon juice
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
1 unbaked pie crust

Pumpkin Mixture
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups of pumpkin (I use canned)
1 cup evaporated milk
1/2 cup of sugar
2 tbsp melted butter
3/4 tsp of cinnamon
1/8 tsp of nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt

Crumb topping*
1/2 cup of flour
1/3 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp of cinnamon
4 tbsp of butter
*put the dry ingredients in a bowl and cut in the butter

Put the apples in the bottom of your unbaked pie crust.  Pour the pumpkin over this and bake at 375 for 30 min.  Take out and sprinkle the crumb topping over the pie.  Bake another 20 min.

Let cool.  Enjoy!  If you want to add a bit of real whipped cream, you will forever be talked about at holiday dinners.  :)
