Apple Crumble Pie

This is the most addicting pie I have ever had! Perfect for fall. Serve with a side of vanilla ice cream and you are set. One of my families favorite desserts when we have people over.

How to Make Apple Crumble Pie


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Pie dough: mix sugar,salt, and flour in a bowl.
  2. Take butter and cut into flour mixture with a pastry cutter. Do this until it turns into pea size.
  3. Add water slowly and knead into dough until moistened. (you may not use all of the water so don't add all at once) Knead until a dough is formed. Wrap and refrigerate until firm or overnight.
  4. On a floured table roll out dough into a 8-9 inch pie tin. ( I spray my tin before placing dough into it) roll dough into it and make a nice crust, cut off any extra hanging over the edge.
  5. Take fork and dock dough ( put tiny holes) in bottom of crust so it doesn't puff up when baking. Let crust rest. (you can wrap and refrigerate if you want)
  6. In a bowl combine sliced apples, butter,cinnamon,nutmeg,tapioca, vanilla extract, and sugar. Pour into pie crust and pat down so all is even.
  7. To make topping: In a bowl combine flour,cinnamon,brown sugar, and oats. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter until mixture is crumbly.
  8. Take the crumble and evenly spread it over apples making sure to cover all the apples.
  9. Place pie on a sheet pan and place in oven for an hour. (Until the top is light brown and inside apples are soft: test with knife in center of the pie)
  10. Let cool, cut and serve. Enjoy!
