Perfect Apple Pie with a Buttery Crumb Topping #Recipe


It's that time of year where I feel like I am baking all the time, making pies, cookies, pumpkin rolls, and cakes left and right! I recently made my most requested pie for Thanksgiving, which happens to be apple crumb pie and I thought I'd share this family favorite recipe with my lovely readers!

Ingredients for dough:
1/2 Cup Flour
1/2 Cup Shortening
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 Cup Ice Cold Water (or more)

Directions:
Mix flour, shortening and salt. Gradually add water- fold with hand no more than 8 times. Wrap dough ball in plastic, refrigerate for a 1/2 hour. Makes 1 bottom pie crust-- double for 2 bottoms. 

Ingredients for filling:
5-6 McIntosh apples
1/2 Cup Sugar
2 Tbl Flour
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 dash Salt & Nutmeg (very little)


Directions:
Peel apples, core them and slice them thinly. Mix all the filling ingredients with the apples. Roll out your refrigerated dough. Make sure you flour your work station (counter/table) and rolling pin. Place your dough in your pie baking glassware and trim ends. Place your apples in your pie shell.

Ingredients for crumbs:
1/2 Cup Sugar
3/4 Cup Flour
1/3 Cup Butter (stick-room temperature!)
**Makes enough for 2 pies

Directions:
Fork all of the crumb ingredients together and sprinkle on top of pie. Bake your pie at 350 degrees for 50 minutes. **I wrap the edges of my pie crust with tin foil and remove the last 5 minutes so it's golden brown and not too dark/crispy.


That's it! You will have a delicious and most favored homemade apple pie! Enjoy!

  13. Thanks so much for the recipe Perfect Apple Pie with a Buttery Crumb Topping! LOL This is exactly how I make my Apple Pies! I have so many apples in my fridge right now that I'm debating on making a pie or apple dumplings! I'm making a Strawberry Pie tomorrow for Easter Sunday Dessert and while I'm at it, I was thinking of making an apple pie as well! I haven't quite decided! Thanks for sharing your Perfect Apple Pie Recipe with all of us! I make it just like you do, crumbs and all! Thanks again! Michele :)

  14. I made an apple pie today - just like yours! I also made a Strawberry Pie! I'd post you a Picture of the Strawberry Pie, however, there's no where to post it to! I also cut up the rest of the strawberries that I had and put them in a container. I made what we call "a strawberry cake"! It's a plain cake, not sweet at all and you are supposed to put a piece of the cake in a bowl, pour some strawberries on it, add some milk and top with whipped topping! YUMMY!! I was busy in the kitchen today! Kids went to a friend's house so I baked all by myself this time! My Apple Pie turned out really well too! I still have so many apples in my fridge! The oven will be busy tomorrow with a ham in it, plus whatever else I make with it! Thanks for posting so many terrific recipes and sharing them with all of us! OH, YES, and Tonight we had the Stuffed Shells with ground meat for dinner! They were delicious!!!! Thanks for that recipe as well! Thanks Again and I hope you and your family have a Happy Easter!!! Michele :)
