Apple Crumble Pie

Sharing is caring!

It’s pie season. Specifically apple pie season. But guess who hates pie? Not me–whoa no no. I love pie. It’s my husband. He’s never liked pie, except for key lime pie. I was pretty sad about this the first year we were married because I wanted to be all domesticated and make pies like a good little housewife.

But then one day we went to a church function and a lady there served the most delicious apple pie–apple crumble pie.  And my husband raved about it! I begged her for the recipe since I finally found an apple pie recipe that he would eat. And this, my friends, is that pie recipe.

Ingredients:

Crust:

  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1 1/2 Tsp. Sugar
  • 1 Tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Cold Milk

Mix up all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and then pat into a pie pan.  Do not roll out.

Filling:

  • 4 Cups sliced apples
  • 1/2 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Flour
  • 1/2 Tsp Nutmeg
  • 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon

Peel and cut up 4-5 large apples.  I used some Golden Delicious fresh from my mom’s apple trees.  I used those cool spinny apple slicer tools that make short work of apples.  Turn ’em into little apple slinkies.  Then I chop them up and mix in the other ingredients.  Put your apples into your unbaked pie shell.

Topping:

  • 1/2 Cup Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Cold Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar

Cut up your butter into little cubes and then mix in the sugar and flour until they are in little crumbles.  Put on top of the pie.

Put the whole pie into a brown paper bag and seal.  Bake it at 350 degrees for 1 1/2 hours and don’t peek!  Serve with vanilla ice cream!

  1. Sounds and looks DELICIOUS!! I’m definitely trying this recipe. Quick question…what type of “seal” is required with the brown paper bag?

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      I just folded it over! It’s really yummy and easy–go try it!

  2. How wonderfu,l this looks yummy. I do love apple pies, especially this time of year…….ok anytime of year.

  3. Oh my gosh Heidi, this looks delicious! You better believe I will be trying it out with the apples I have in my kitchen! xoxo, Tauni

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      Thanks Tauni! It’s a great recipe–so fast too!

  4. This looks sooo good I am defiantly going to try this! My husband also informed me that he didn’t like pie the first year we were married and I freaked a little. I love pie and I love to make pies. After he tried an apple pie I made he said maybe it was just the recipe and then ate half my pie. I fell in love a little more that day .
    Quick question though: are we talking like a regular old Winco brown paper grocery bag? What is the purpose of the bag? This seems dangerous to me 🙂 Thanks for the help!

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      I think the brown bag helps it to stay moist and to not get burned because it cooks for so long. I put the bag (with the pie in it) on a cookie sheet and make sure the sides and top aren’t touching the oven. It’s all good!

  5. My daughter and I just tried this pie tonight. We were hesitant to put a brown paper bag in the oven but it was fine
    1 And the pie……..so amazing….crispy outside and soft and tasty inside! Everyone loves it! This will be a family favourite.

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      Thank you Marleen!! I know that it can be a little nervewracking putting the paper bag in the stove but as long as it’s not touching the sides of the oven but I just tuck it in there neatly. And yes–it does turn out amazing!!

    I made it yesterday and ate it today, it was sooooooo good! My first time making a pie and it went great! Never have I seen the ingredients and the look of my pie look so similar to someone who posted pictures about it . Thank you for sharing! Godbless:)

  7. Is there an alternative to using the brown paper bag? I live in an apartment and don’t want to take the risk…

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      I’m not sure because I’ve never tried. You could try making a ‘bag’ out of tin foil but I’m not sure that would create the same result. If you put the pie and bag on a cookie sheet and make sure it doesn’t touch the sides or top, it should be fine. Just keep an eye on it if you’re nervous.

  8. This recipe looks sooo good! Question: Think it is possible to add oats to the topping? Thx!!

    1. Heidi @ Honeybear Lane says:

      Thanks–it is good! I’m sure you could add oats, doesn’t hurt to try!

      1. OK I made it and it was a HUGE hit! (we didn’t use the oats this time though).

        My new question is that when I made the crumble top it wasn’t really…crumbly. I followed the instructions but everything just kind of blended together like a batter, not like crumble. I used cold butter, any ideas what could have gone wrong?

        Regardless I just ended up dropping the batter across the pie and it was still delicious but when I make it again for Thanksgiving I would like it to be perfect! 🙂
