Apple Crumble Pie

The cinnamon oat crumble topping on this Apple Crumble Pie is a delicious twist to classic apple pie!

This past weekend, we had a really nice visit with my Mom & Dad, so comfort food was on the menu! My family loves apple pie, especially my Dad. I only had one crust in the freezer, a huge bag of apples, and ingredients for a crumble, so I thought, I’d put them all together and make an Apple Crumble Pie! I love to wing it with cooking, and it doesn’t always work out, but this time it did! Yeeeuum!

The cinnamon oat crumble topping is such a delicious addition to this pie…it’s flavourful, sweet and compliments perfectly.  I don’t know why I haven’t done this sooner!

Ingredients

Pie Crust:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup shortening (lard)
  • 1/4 cup water

Apple Pie Mix:

  • 5 - 6 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced (I use Macintosh)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt

Crumble Topping:

  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 5 tbsp melted butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Pie Crust:

  1. Sift flour and salt into a bowl.

  2. With a pie cutter, cut in the shortening until the particles are pea sized.

  3. Sprinkle in water, 1 tsp or so at a time, mixing lightly with a fork. Don't over mix or the crust will be tough.
  4. Press into a ball. It is okay if it is crumbly. In fact crumbly makes for a tender, flaky crust!
  5. This recipe makes 2 - 9" crusts, so split the ball in 2, and freeze one half for later.
  6. Press the crust into a 9" pie plate.

Apple Pie Mix:

  1. In a separate bowl combine the sliced apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt.  Set aside.

Crumble Topping:

  1. In another bowl combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and melted butter.

Putting it all together:

  1. To the crust in the pie plate, add the apple mix, then top with crumble mixture.

  2. Bake for about 1 hour, or until you see the apple mix bubbling up from under the crumble.

Recipe Notes

This recipe makes 2 crusts, so after you split the dough in half, you can freeze one half for later!
