Apple Crumble Pie

The oldest '87 requested an apple crumble pie for Thanksgiving dinner. I told her to bring one, but then remembered I had a bag of apples in the fridge that really needed to be eaten. So then I told her to come peel the apples and I would make a pie. Ha! She overslept and her middle sister came over and did it instead.

Apple Crumble Pie

For one deep-dish 10-inch pie, you'll need:
1 pie crust per my recipe for cherry pie or store-bought pie crust
About 2 to 2 1/2 lbs of apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/2 cup brown sugar, divided into half for filling and for topping
1/2 cup flour, divided into half for filling and for topping
2 tblsp butter, melted
2 tsp cinnamon, divided into half for filling and for topping

Make the pie crust and set aside.

Peel and slice the apples. Toss with 2 tblsp brown sugar, 2 tblsp flour, and 1 tsp cinnamon. Fill bottom of pie pan.

In a bowl, add 2 tblsp brown sugar, 2 tblsp flour, 2 tblsp melted butter, and 1 tsp cinnamon. The mixture should be crumbly. Sprinkle on top of the pie. I've seen recipes online with half a cup of butter and half a cup of sugar. Ack! I'm just trying to keep this somewhat healthy. This is just a light layer, if you want a thick crumb layer, then double the recipe.

Bake at 350 degrees for half an hour to 45 minutes until crust turns golden.

  1. Hmm am I the only person who likes pie crusts more than the fillings? But that's a good way to use up old fruit!
