I took my mothers recipe and made it even better. She didn't complain. LOL! I thought she'd ask what I changed, but she didn't. Hers or mine, both are easy and delicious! I warmed up some caramel and piped over the pie. Completely optional.


Enjoy warm with a scoop of vanilla or cinnamon ice cream. Yum!

How to Make ~ Simple Apple Crumb Pie ~ With Or Without Caramel

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degree F.

    In a large bowl, toss apples with lemon juice. Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon and flour. Toss to coat apples evenly.
  2. Evenly arrange apples in pie crust.
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter. Mix the flour and sugar with the melted butter.

    Note: I used a crust shield for the first 30 minutes.
