Nothing says Fall like apple picking! I love to go apple picking and my reward is delicious apple pie.
This Apple Crisp Pie is one of my absolute favorites — combining two of my favorite desserts into one is a winner every time. I made mine with a combo of Snap Dragons and Zestars, but any combination of the apples you love to eat will be equally delicious.
- 1 single pie crust (I make my own, but you can use something off the shelf if you find making pastry to be too scary!)
For the Filling:
- 6-7 medium apples
- 2 T. lemon juice
- 1/2 c. granulated sugar
- 3/4 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 3 T. flour
For the Topping:
- 1/2 c. flour
- 1/4 c. brown sugar
- 1/4 c. granulated sugar
- 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
- 8 T. cold butter
- 1/4 c. chopped pecans (optional)
Peel, core, and slice the apples. Toss with lemon juice to prevent browning.
Sprinkle the sugar, cinnamon, salt, and flour over the apples and stir to coat the apples.
Let them sit for at least 30 minutes to draw out the juices.
While the apples are macerating, mix the topping.
Combine all topping ingredients, working the butter with your fingertips to create the crumble.
Preheat the oven to 450F.
Pour the apples into your prepared pie shell and sprinkle with the topping mixture.
Bake the pie for 15 minutes at 450F.
Reduce heat to 350F and bake for another 40-50 minutes.
I promise you’re going to love the end result!
