Apple Crumb Pie

I have REALLY been slacking on posting since the holidays but today I've got a special treat that will hopefully make up for it...WARM APPLE PIE. YUMM!!! It's super easy too with only a single bottom crust and a buttery crumbly goodness for the topping... Oh me oh my!!

Pastry for a single crust pie; 9 in- recipe at the bottom for the best pie crust! 
6 cups tart apples diced- you can slice them thinly if you prefer, I like mine diced small
2 tbsp. butter; melted
2 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp + 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar
 1 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
Crumb Topping
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup sgar
1/4 cup cold butter

In a large bowl combine the first 6 ingredients & toss gently to coat the apples. Pour into a prepared pie crust; set aside while you prepare topping.
In a small mixing bowl, combine cold butter, flour, & sugar. Cut the cold butter into flour/sugar until you get a pea like consistency. Pour crumb topping over apple filling. Bake @ 375 degrees for about 45-50 minutes or until light golden & bubbly. Cool for about and hour or longer. I prefer it at room temperature. ENJOY!!!

  Pie Crust Recipe
1 cup flour
1/2 cup chilled butter cut up in cubes (1/2 cup butter flavored shortening works well too)
 1/4 tsp salt
 1/4-1/3 cup tepid water
 2 tsp white vinegar


  1. I have to say this was one of the best Pie recipes I've had in a very long time. I used granny smith apples, and did cut down on the sugar and it was absolutely delicious. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Thanks for sharing, this one totally reminded me of a recipe I tried once called apple fine pie.
