There’s nothing more satisfying than the smell of a freshly baked pie in the oven! And this easy apple crumble pie recipe is the perfect sweet treat for any occasion. With a crispy, buttery crumb topping and a deliciously spiced apple filling, this pie is guaranteed to impress your guests.
First, preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Then, in a large bowl, mix together 1 1/4 cups (150g) of all-purpose flour, 1/4 cup (50g) of granulated sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Add 1/2 cup (115g) of unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, and mix until the dough forms small clumps.
Place the dough in a 9-inch (23cm) pie dish and press it evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the dish. Bake the crust for 12-15 minutes, or until it just starts to turn golden brown.
While the crust is baking, prepare the filling. Peel and slice 5 cups (600g) of apples and toss them with 1/2 cup (100g) of granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg, and a pinch of salt.
Once the crust is baked, pour the apple filling into it and spread it evenly. Now it’s time to make the topping!
In a separate bowl, mix together 1/2 cup (60g) of all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup (100g) of brown sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Add 1/4 cup (55g) of unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, and mix until the mixture forms coarse crumbs. Sprinkle the crumb topping over the apple filling in the pie dish.
Bake the pie for 40-45 minutes, or until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbly. Let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
Now, let’s get to the fun part – enjoying this delicious apple crumble pie! The crispy and buttery crumb topping complements the sweet and spiced apple filling perfectly, making it a match made in heaven. Serve it with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra special treat.
This pie is perfect for any occasion – whether it’s a casual weeknight dinner, a holiday gathering, or a special celebration. It’s easy to make and sure to please everyone’s sweet tooth. What are you waiting for? Grab some apples and get baking!
