Apple Crumb Pie

Prep Time: 20 mins
Ready In: 1 hr. 20 mins
Servings: 8

This is the first night Richard had to work the evening shift, so I wanted to bake something to keep me busy.  I am subscribed to's/ 25 pies to Thanksgiving countdown in which they send you a new pie recipe each day.  Today's pie recipe was the Apple Crumb Pie.  I figured, what the heck, why not bake it.  I tweaked the recipe, so here goes:

  • 1 9 inch pie shell ( I used Pilsbury)
  • 4 to 5 Granny Smith Apples Cut into chunks (I wanted to do chunks, but you can use slices)
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice (optional, I did not use it since I forgot to buy the lemon)
  • 3/4 Cup white sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon ground Cinnamon
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground Cinnamon
  • 1/8 Teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons butter
  1. Preheat oven to0 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. Place apple chunks into large bowl.  If using lemon, sprinkle apples with lemon juice.  In a small bowl, mix together white sugar, 2 Tablespoons of flour, 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Sprinkle this mixture over the apples making sure that the apples are evenly coated.  Spoon mixture into pastry shell.
  3. In a small bowl mix together 1/2 cup of flour, brown sugar and 1/8 teaspoon Cinnamon.  Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly.  Sprinkle mixture over apple filling.  Cover top loosely with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in oven for 25 minutes.  Then remove foil and bake uncovered for 25 to 30 minutes, until top is golden brown.  Cool on a wire rack.
This recipe was fairly easy to make.  Our house smelled great while the pie was baking.  I will take a picture and post it as soon as I can since my dear husband has the camera in his car, that is if there is any pie left tomorrow!
