Apple Crumble Pie Recipe
One of my sons won a neighborhood pie contest with this pie. It's good, and he has lots more experience on the golf course than in the kitchen; i.e., it's easy.
- Preheat oven to 400°F.
- Peel and slice the apples into quarter-inch slices until you have 5 cups of apple slices. Put apple slices into the unbaked pie shell.
- Mix together the 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon, and sprinkle evenly over the apple slices.
- Prepare the crumble top by mixing the remaining 1/3 cup sugar with the flour. Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or fork until ingredients are incorporated. Sprinkle crumble mixture on top of pie.
- Bake at 400°F for 35 to 40 minutes until crumble top is golden brown.
- Makes one pie.
Note: If your crumble mixture isn't crumbly enough to suit you, add a teaspoon or two more flour to firm it up.
