grandma´s german apple crumble pie

Today I want to show you how good a german apple crumble pie can taste and look like.
My friend told me about his grandma´s apple pie and his memories about it.
The smile on his face while he was talking about his childhood and the memories about these special sunday´s when his grandma baked that apple pie  touched my heart.
I just had to try this pie.

If you don´t have any vanilla sugar you can make your own. It´s a nice recipe and you can also use vanilla sugar for other cakes, pies, cookies and desserts. Just have a look here.

3.          Roll dough to a uniform thickness on a large cookie sheet.
4.          Peel 4-5 apples and shred them. I prefer using about 6-8 apples

6.          Place the shred apples on the dough and cover immediately with the
