Apple Crumb Pie


This was a favorite while raising my kids, then my mom started to make this for my father and brother and critiqued instead of crumb topping she used a crust. Goes great with ice cream on a hot slice of pie.

Step 1

Cut off peels, core the apples then slice them up.
Place in a large or medium bowl.

Step 2

Place sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, flour over apples in a bowl. Mix together. Place apples into your pie shell.

Step 3

Mix together the ingredients for the crumb topping using a pastry cutter, if you don't have one use a blender of a mix master. You want the topping to look crumbly. If you don't have of those tools use a fork to mash together. Put topping on pie to cover to the ends of the crust.

Step 4

Place pie in oven at 425 degrees for 15 minutes then reduce the oven to 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Make sure you have foil or a cookie sheet under the pie as it might boil apple juice over the top of the crust. After its done take out to cool for 15-30 minutes to set up.


Make sure you use something under that pie in the oven otherwise it will drip on the bottom of the oven to clean later.
