Love my Momma's apple crumb pie. We recently had a few organic Braeburn apples that were super tart. I'm talkin so tart that our lips puckered when we ate one. You should've seen Nash's face. We knew right away these apples weren't for eating, they were for pie making!
So Walt set out to the store on Monday afternoon for a pie crust and some vanilla ice cream and we had quite the Labor Day dessert. Apple picking season is upon us to bookmark/pin this recipe to try. With only six ingredients needed, this a real crowd pleaser for sure.
Momma's Apple Crumb Pie
5-7 apples (Momma suggest Macintosh)
9" deep dish pie crust
1 cup sugar (divided in half)
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup flour
1/3 cup softened butter
Preheat oven to 350. Lay pie crust in pie pan. Peel, core and dice apples into chunks. Arrange in uncooked pie shell. Mix 1/2 cup sugar and all cinnamon together. Sprinkle over apples. For the crumb topping; mix remaining 1/2 cup of sugar, flour and softened butter with a fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over apples.
Bake 40 minutes until tender. Serve alone or with ice cream. Momma also suggest drizzling warm caramel sauce on top too! Enjoy!
My two fave guys, busy bees in our kitchen. Walt was dicing up the apples (you can also used thinly sliced but Walt prefers diced) and Nash was obviously on the search for his 'pup pup' Zola!
Diced apples being loaded up in the store bought pie crust.
Cinnamon and sugar topping has been added. We used turbinado sugar because we were all out of the plain old stuff.
And now for the crumble!
Fresh outta the oven...delish!
So yeah, we're a bit heavy handed when it comes to slicing up pieces. Now really, is there any other way?
And per our usual, we like ours à la mode!
