Apple Crumb Pie

 (I couldn't get a pic before my family cut into this yummy pie!)

I found this recipe last year and thought it was delicious! It comes from All Recipes.


  • 1 (9 inch) pie shell
  • 6 cups thinly sliced apples the apples I was using were on the small side, so I needed 8 apples
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (optional)
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place sliced apples in a large bowl. Sprinkle with lemon juice if desired. In a small bowl, mix together white sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sprinkle mixture over apples. Toss until apples are evenly coated. Stir in raisins and walnuts if desired. Spoon mixture into pastry shell.
  3. In a small bowl mix together 1/2 cup flour and brown sugar. Cut in butter or margarine until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle mixture over apple filling. Before I sprinkle the mixture over the top, I sprinkle a tiny amount of plain brown sugar over the apples to cut back on the tartness of the apples. Cover top loosely with aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove foil and bake an additional 25 to 30 minutes, until top is golden brown. The total cooking time was closer to an hour and 15 min. but cooking time varies by ovens. Cool on a wire rack.
