Equipment

  • 9 inch pie pan

Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked pie crust (refrigerated, frozen or homemade)
  • 6 granny smith apples- peeled, cored, sliced ¼ inch thick
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Crumble Topping

  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ cup room temperature butter

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Follow the pie crust instructions for thawing, and place crust over a 9 inch ungreased pie pan.
  • Flute the edges of the pie by pressing your index finger on one hand, in between your index finger and thumb on the other hand. Set aside. 
  • In a large bowl, prepare the filling by mixing the apples, lemon juice, flour, cinnamon, sugar and vanilla. Then, pour into prepared pie pan. 
  • To make the crumble topping, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, flour and room temperature butter in a medium bowl. Use a fork and press the butter into the other ingredients, until the mixture is nice and crumbly. 
  • Pour the crumble topping on top of the pie. 
  • Bake the pie for 15 minutes at 400 degrees, then lower the temperature to 375 and bake for an additional 35 minutes. 
  • Allow the pie to cool completely before serving. Top with ice cream and caramel drizzle for the ultimate treat. 

Notes

Expert Tips for Making Apple Crumble Pie:
Evenly slice the apples when making apple crumble pie so the apples in the cooked pie have the best texture. You want them tender, but not mushy or too crunchy.
Use room temperature butter to make the apple crumble topping. This makes mixing up the ingredients for the topping easier and ensures that they mix up evenly.
Be sure to lower the oven temperature to 375 degrees after the pie cooks for 15 minutes. This prevents the top of the pie from getting too brown, you may need to cover with aluminum foil for the last several minutes of baking. 
Apple crumb pie tastes best when eaten on the same day it's cooked, especially if it's still a little warm from the oven.
