Apple Crumble Pie

Apple Crumble Pie

The humble apple pie, a timeless classic. This is a pie that is reserved for special occasions like the holidays. I helped my friend D make this to celebrate with her family and she can tell you how easy it is.


2 Refrigerator Pie crusts


Buttermilk Pie Crusts


3 1/2 Large Green Apples or 6 1/2 Small Green Apples

3/4 Cup Sugar

1 Tablespoon Flour

1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

Pinch of Salt

16 Ounces Applesauce

1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice

2 Tablespoons Butter COLD


3 Tablespoons Flour

1 Tablespoon Sugar

Pinch of Salt

1 Tablespoon Butter Softened

So first things first. You peel and chop all the apples. D and I used small green apples.

In another small bowl mix together sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt.



This is D. She’s mixing the dry ingredients for the filling 🙂

Add the applesauce and the lemon juice to the apples and then mix in the cinnamon sugar mix. We used a fresh lemon to get our lemon juice but the bottled stuff works just fine.

Next you want to pour the filling into one of the pie crusts. Once its in you want to top the filling with the two tablespoons of cold butter. You want to chop that butter up into small cubes that you can spread over the top of the pie.

Lay the second pie round on a piece of parchment paper and cut it into strips. D and I used a pizza cutter to slice the dough. Our strips didn’t turn out even or straight at all. Once you have those lay them in a lattice pattern on top of the pie.

We cut the edges of the strips off of the pie and pressed the edges together. Once that’s done you want to combine all the ingredients for the crumble in a bowl and use a fork to mix the butter into the sugar, flour and salt. Then crumble it over the top of the pie.

Bake the pie at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, cover with aluminum foil and bake for 40 minutes. Remove the foil and bake another 5 minutes before taking the pie out to cool. Eat it warm, cold, by itself, or a la mode with some vanilla ice cream but anyway you have it you’ll enjoy it.

    So delicious and sweet! This pie, with its pastry crust and cinnamon-spiced oat topping, is the perfect combination of caramel apple pie and apple crumble.
