Apple Pie with Crumb Topping
So I made my first homemade apple pie of the season for friends (and if I don’t say so myself) – it was DELISH!!!
This is my sister Kristen’s recipe and you have to give it a try!!! I highly recommend if you are stinky at making crust like me – to buy the prepackaged crust – I made the crust from the recipe below and it tasted great – but it didn’t turn out too pretty. But the filling is simple, quick and SOOOO good! And the crumb topping mmmmm… girls now we are talking comfort food!!!
French Apple Pie
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 cup plus 1 tbsp shortening
2 tbsp water
6-7 cups peeled and sliced granny smith apples
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tbsp butter
Mix and place in pastry shell
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup flour
That looks so delicious! So Fallish and tasty looking!
I love all things fall… especially apple pie!!
Wow that does sound simple and tasty. My stomache has been totally tempted.
Yummy!!! My husband loves apple pie. 🙂
Hey, try Gala apples with two teaspoons of lemon juice next time. They are softer and make a FABULOUS pie. I learned that when we lived in the country and went to a little country church with these women who would bowl you over with their pies. Good Heavens!
I used to use Granny Smiths, too. You won't believe the difference when you use Galas!!!!
Love your blog!
MMM that looks delish!
Oh my!!! Looks wonderful!!! Happy TMTT!
yay something to make with all my apples I bought today!!
oh…I can smell this already. I don't like apple pie, but my husband and my girls do…this I will have to try after a trip to the apple orchard. thanks
I love apple pies and will make this soon because it is apple season here
This looks so yummy, Courtney! Thanks for sharing it in the linkup!
Thanks! I wanted to make apple pies for our Sunday company. I already have the crusts in the freezer, but I am going to use the rest of your recipe! Mmmm!! 🙂
Yummy! I need to make an apple pie this weekend. I have to share that the Pioneer Woman’s pie crust recipe is the best I have ever tried. She’s got a great tutorial too.
The recipe looks really easy and sounds super delicious. I will let you know how mine turns out.
