Ingredients

4
tablespoons butter
2
large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and diced into 1/4-inch cubes
1/4
cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
1/2
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8
teaspoon salt
1/4
cup all-purpose flour
1
Pillsbury™ refrigerated pie crust, softened as directed on box
1
tablespoon cornstarch
4
slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F.
  • 2 In 10-inch skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat. Add apples; cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of the sugar, 1/4 teaspoon of the cinnamon and the salt. Cook about 5 minutes longer or until tender. Cool.
  • 3 Cut remaining 2 tablespoons butter into small pieces, then mix with flour, remaining 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 cup sugar. Rub ingredients together or use fork to mash together until crumbly. Add crumbled bacon.

Instead of bacon, add toasted nuts to the topping.

Use pears mixed with 1/4 cup of dried cranberries instead of apples.
