Forget about the fancy pie lattice for your pies and enjoy a much simpler pie topping with this Crumble Top Apple Pie. This recipe includes the bottom pie crust only which means you don’t have to fiddle with the finicky top crust if you don’t want to. Making pie crust from scratch can be hard at first, but once you practice the art of pie crust making, you’ll find that it becomes easier and easier. One of the best rules of thumb is don’t handle the dough more than you have to. Over handling the pie crust dough can make it tough and chewy rather than light and flaky, which is what we want. The pie filling recipe is very simple to make on your own, and only requires simple ingredients like chopped apples and brown sugar with spices and flour. Think of a pie mixed with a crumble, two of the best fruity desserts put together and you have the Crumble Top Apple Pie. Delicious.
Beautiful and excellent pie! I did (accidentally) increase the butter in the crumb topping! I also, based on other reviews, increase the flour in the filling mix to eliminate runniness. I had made this pie for a friend, but my dear husband refused to let it leave the house! Smelled so wonderful he could not resist. Cool completely before slicing! I know it is hard…you can also zap it in the microwave to serve with vanilla ice cream!
This is definitely in the top five of pies that I have ever eaten. Needless to say, that says a lot. For two pies, I used six granny smith apples, or seven with light snacking. I also double the crumb mixture. The crumb mixture tastes even better with ground cloves, allspice, and nutmeg. mmm…nutmeg
This is a keeper.
