New Recipe: Apple Pie with a Cinnamon Crumble Top

Happy Tasty Tuesday!
As mentioned before I went apple picking last weekend at Indian Farms and ended up coming home with a huge bag full of delicious fruit. So obviously my goal was to turn that healthy bag of apples into an unhealthy dessert, apple pie! Of course I had so many apples that I didn't even stop at one pie, I actually made two. The recipe I used was so easy that it took me only an hour from start to finish to complete all the steps, the worst part being the peeling of the apples which is no fun. Since we only have a month and a half until the holiday season (omg), I wanted to share this apple pie recipe with all of you knowing that many pies will be baked for Thanksgiving!

**This recipe is for one pie, double it if you want to make more than one like I did**

Ingredients for Filling:
  • About 7 empire or granny smith apples, pealed (depending on the size of your pie pan)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 Pillsbury pie crust
Ingredients for Cinnamon Crumble Top:
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter, cubed.
Pre-crumble top 
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Peal apples, remove stems and cut into slices, discarding the core. Set aside.
  • In a bowl combine all ingredients for filling except pie crust and stir. Making sure the apples are completely coated in the sugary mixture.
  • Spray pie pan with Pam or grease the inside of it. Lay Pillsbury pie crust inside of it and pour the apple mixture into the crust pan.
  • In a separate bowl, combine cinnamon crumble top ingredients and use a food processor or mixer to blend the ingredients until it has the consistency of wet sand. 
  • Pour crumble mixture on top of apple pie, distributing evenly until apples are covered.
  • Bake in the oven for 45 minutes, or until topping is golden brown.
  • Enjoy!
