one 9 1/2” unbaked, deep dish pie crust

8 oz. vanilla yogurt

In a medium bowl, stir together 2/3 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/3 cup packed brown sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon. With pastry blender, cut in 3 tablespoons cold butter or margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Pie Recipe

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl, combine sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon. Add apples. Toss until well combined.

3. Add yogurt to apple mixture and toss well to coat evenly. Spoon apple mixture into piecrust. Sprinkle top of apples evenly with crumb mixture.

4. Place pie on non-stick or foil-lined cookie sheet to catch any overflow during baking. Bake the pie for 1 hour. Turn oven control to 350 degrees F and bake 35 to 45 minutes longer, until filling bubbles in center. If necessary, cover pie loosely with foil during the last 20 minutes of baking to prevent overbrowning.

5. Cool pie slightly on wire rack to serve warm, or cool completely to serve later. Makes 10 servings.
