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!
You should make this…you won’t regret it!
Apple Crumble Pie
- 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
- 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
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Sift flour and salt into a bowl.
With a pie cutter, cut in the shortening until the particles are pea sized.
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.
Press into a ball. It is okay if it is crumbly. In fact crumbly makes for a tender, flaky crust!
This recipe makes 2 - 9" crusts, so split the ball in 2, and freeze one half for later.
Press the crust into a 9" pie plate.
Apple Pie Mix:
In a separate bowl combine the sliced apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
In another bowl combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt and melted butter.
Putting it all together:
To the crust in the pie plate, add the apple mix, then top with crumble mixture.
Bake for about 1 hour, or until you see the apple mix bubbling up from under the crumble.
This recipe makes 2 crusts, so after you split the dough in half, you can freeze one half for later!
