Recipe For Apple Pie Offers A Scrumptious Surprise (NAPSA) - The apple is a symbol of health, of wisdom and of simplicity. These are just a few reasons people say "as American as Mom and apple pie."
When fresh apples are juiciest, Apple Crumb Pie can be a bit saucy, but most apple lovers will be delighted at the prospect of extra juices. It is delicious by itself without accompaniments or it can be served warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a cup of piping hot coffee.
This delicious crunchy recipe has been tested in the kitchens of Karo Corn Syrup.
Prep time: 20 minutes - Bake time: 60 minutes
Preheat oven to 375 F.
Combine sugar, corn starch, cinnamon, salt, butter and corn syrup in a large bowl. Add apples and stir to coat. Pour into pie crust. For crumb topping, combine flour and sugar. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle topping evenly over pie. To avoid boil-overs in the oven, place pie plate on a baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour, until crust is brown and apples are tender.
Recipe Note: If crust browns too quickly, cover edges with foil halfway through baking.
When many American home bakers think of a pie using corn syrup, their first thoughts are most often of pecan pie, but corn syrup can also add flavor to dozens of other tempting, scrumptious pie recipes, such as fruit pies, custard pies, chiffon pies and nut pies.

Best Apples for Baking
Look for Juiciness and Firmness
There are 7,500 varieties of apples known to exist. But not all are good for baking.
Diana McElroy, senior home economist for Karo Syrup, says, "When apples are called for in a baked recipe, we recommend a juicy apple that does not disintegrate easily. Not all varieties stand up well to baking. Some even become bitter."
Karo recommends three apples for baking: McIntosh, Rome Beauty and Granny Smith.
Always store apples in a cool, dark place.
They keep well in a plastic bag and stored in the refrigerator.
