Apple Crumble Pie

After apple-picking in the Hudson Valley, we had the enviable task of figuring out what to do with all of our apples.  We made a significant dent just eating them fresh, but decided to treat ourselves make some warm apple pies.

We adapted our recipe from this Apple Crumble Pie recipe (allrecipes.com)

Ingredients (for 1 pie, though we made 2 - yes, there are only 2 of us!)
1 (9 inch) deep dish pie crust
5 cups apples - chopped (for faster cooking, cut into very thin slices)
2 Tbsp flour (to coat apples)
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 stick butter

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Coat apples with flour, sugar, and cinnamon mixture.
3. Fill crust with coated apples.
4. Make crumble mixture.
5. Cover apples with crumble mixture.
6. Bake pie in oven for an hour, or until apples are soft and top is lightly browned.

Slice pie and serve..

We had our slice a la mode with Creme Brulee ice cream from Shake Shack.

We love crumble - and what's better than warm apple pie with melted ice cream?  Good thing we made a pie for each of us! 


  1. I am drooling! I love the crumbly topping and those apples look great. Fresh apples always make a pie taste ten times better.

  2. arrr... i love a good apple crumble. this is actually the first baking dish I ever learnt and made.

  3. Errr - can you send one of those my way please????

  4. Oh I am definitely saving this recipe - looks amazing!

  5. Oh, what a flavorful weekend. I love the idea of creme brulee ice cream on top.

  6. I adore apple pies, especially with fresh apples. I love that you added a wonderful streusel topping to your creation. It looks so good that I think you should make this pie for Thanksgiving!

  7. @Jessie: Love the fresh apples!

    @Penny: I'm all about the crumble!

    @Mardi: Would love to send you one...maybe we'll set up a Toronto blogger bake-off when we come up to Toronto!

    @Simply Life: Thanks! This is a super-easy pie recipe.

    @Chou: The creme brulee ice cream was delicious (though my favorite part, the hard caramel top, was missing)

    @Fresh Local and Best: That's a great idea - we might make it for Thanksgiving!

    @Laura: It was warm and comforting for a chilly day!

  8. Sounds scrumptious and especially with the creme brulee ice cream, yum!

  9. Yum yum! I wish I could have a bite of that... I've been avoiding all apple related posts, but couldn't avoid it any longer and came here. Looks so good!
