Cinnamon Apple Crumb Pie

Some Kinda Good Cinnamon Apple Crumb Pie is made with Granny Smith Apples and a crunchy pecan crumble topping.

A follower recently reached out to ask me if I had any easy pie recipes for her daughter, who was set to have a baby soon. The first one that came to mind is this Cinnamon Apple Crumb Pie, along with Lime Cheesecake Pie.  I bake this often when I have a bowl of apples on display that need to be used, or in the fall when apples are abundant. It’s crunchy topping is nutty and satisfying, and the sweet filling with the flaky crust are the perfect bite. This pie is also great when you don’t have two pie crusts handy.

Some Kinda Good Cinnamon Apple Crumb Pie

For the filling:

  • 1 (9-inch) frozen or homemade pie crust
  • 6 cups of thinly sliced Granny Smith Apples (about 5 large apples)
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

For the crumble:

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 stick of unsalted cold butter, cubed
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a pie dish, prepare crust by pressing it into the dish, crimping edges as you go. In a large bowl, mix the apples, lemon juice, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg until well combined. Add filling to the pie crust. In a medium bowl using a pastry blender, two forks or your fingers, combine the flour, butter and sugar until pea-size crumbles form. Crumble the topping over the filling, then sprinkle pecans evenly over pie. Cover the pie loosely with foil, and bake for 25 minutes. Remove the foil, and bake an additional 30 minutes until the top is golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

For an impressive dessert, serve this pie to company!
