Apple Crumble Pie

This past weekend, we had a really nice visit with my Mom & Dad. 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!

Apple Crumble Pie
Pie crust 
This recipe makes 2 crusts, so after you split the dough in half, you can freeze one half for later!)
2 cups flour
1 tbsp icing sugar
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup shortening (lard)
1/4 cup water
  • Make your crust first.
  • Sift flour, salt and sugar into a bowl.
  • With a pie cutter, cut in 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 Mix
Peel and core 5-6 medium apples (I prefer Macintosh)
Slice, then combine with:
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar
2-3 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
Combine the following ingredients
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.
  • Assemble your pie: Crust, add apple mix, top with crumble. 
  • Bake for about 1 hour, or until you see the apple mix bubbling up from under the crumble.
