A good apple pie is one of those things that make you feel so warm and cozy. I have had this recipe for over fifteen years, and I haven’t been able to find where I first got it from. I wish I could give credit for the original recipe. It is still my favorite even after all of these years.

Pair this with some rum or bourbon ice cream and oh my goodness, it’s heavenly!

Cinnamon and Sugar Mixture

Crumbly Apple Pie

  • 1 (9 inch) deep dish pie crust
  • 4 medium green apples, peeled, cored, and cut thin
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp cold butter, cut up

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix together in a small mixing bowl the 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon. Place one layer of apples in the bottom of the pie shell. Sprinkle apples with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Put down another layer of apples. Sprinkle again with cinnamon sugar mixture. Continue layering apples and cinnamon sugar mixture until the pie crust in full.

In a separate small mixing bowl, stir together remaining sugar and flour. Cut in butter until it is incorporated well, and resembles a crumb topping. I use my fingers to do this. You can also use a fork or a pastry blender. I just find them more cumbersome. Sprinkle the crumb mixture all over the top of the pie. Place in the oven for 45 minutes until golden on the top. Allow pie to rest for 15 minutes before cutting into it.
