Crumb Topped Apple Pie

My dad sent home with us a large bag of apples from his apple tree. We made a Crumb Topped Apple Pie for yesterday's dessert. First, J and Miss M peeled and cored the apples using our Apple Peeler Corer from Pampered Chef. I love that gadget!


We filled a ready made pie crust (I use Marie Callender's Deep Dish Pie Crusts.) with 5 cups of peeled and sliced apples. I would recommend using a tart apple because the topping is sweet.


Combine sugar, flour and cinnamon for the filling and sprinkle it over the apples in the pie pan.


Next, combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle that over the filling. Be sure to use cold butter in the topping. It will make it crumblier. (Is that even a word?!)



Bake on an aluminum foil covered baking sheet on 450 degrees for 10 minutes, then reduce to 350 degrees and back for an additional 50-60 minutes until filling is bubbly.



Enjoy!

I just found your site, and was VERY IMPRESSED by it! I am trying your crumb topping you have listed for Apple Crisp today, but am using some peaches I froze this year, and am putting some cinnamon in it!
